Any ideas?

This just appeared in a crevice on some live rock. It inflates and then deflates if anything goes near it. Any ideas would be welcome

Cheers

I would say that is a majano anemone. A pest anemone one would address with a product like aiptasia-x.

Oh right. If I treat it with Aiptasia-X and itís not a majano will it still kill it. Iíd hate to kill off something thatís desirable as opposed to a pest

Cheers
