as far as majano anemones I haven't found anything that looks remotely close to what these things look like. now as far as aiptasia i have thought about that to but i have never seen any aiptasia that looks like these do. all the aiptasia i have ever seen on have like ten or fifteen tenicals along its outer ring. This stuff has tenicals around the outer egde along with more tenticals in the center. They as far as the shape of the tenicals themselves they aren't that long but the are more rounded at the tips instead of being pointed like aiptasia is. im not sure i think that i'm just going to get rid of them this weekend. I just dont want to have something take over my tank. what do you guys think???

If it's not a majano, then try looking at pictures of Ricordea Yuma mushrooms. They are also brownish, with a foot, and elongated "bumps" that kind of look like tentacles. Does it have an obvious single "mouth" in the middle of the poly?

benni, try taking a picture a little futher away so that your camera can focus better. We can always zoom in on it to get a closer look. That way it won't be so blurry.

Have you poked it?
I find that anemone will turn into a ball almost instantly.

EN GARDE!!!

Hehe have fun.
A piece of advice - If the piece of LR it's attached to is only small just throw the rock as well. It will save you a tonne of trouble.
