It's aiptasia. You're going to want to remove all of those pest anemones.

If the rock where the anemone is can be removed, use a lighter or cooking torch to burn it off. This works best imo\ime.

If the rock can't be removed, you can inject various things into the anemone with a syringe: kalk paste, hot lemon juice. There are also other commercial products you can use: joe's juice, aiptasia X etc.

You might, but there's no way to tell unless you move your rock around. Up to you though. Peppermint shrimp can also handle aiptasia; but it's not guaranteed.
