It looks almost like my watermelon zoa but thinking it could be the last of the pest anemones.
Any ideas ?

It could definitely be some sort of zoanthid or maybe even a button polyp. It isn't a nuisance anemone because I had some. They're called aptasia. They're usually colorless or just one color(pink, tan, orange) but are transparent. They won't be any attractive colors like that green or it wouldn't be as bad as a nuisance. I think you got some baby coral there.

Yes, when splitting/multiplying, their eggs can flow to a whole different area of the tank. Definitely not a anemone, it's a polyp.
