Live rock hitchhiker

Just got some live rock from a friend and noticed this on it after I put it in. Is this a patch of Aiptaisia anemones?

Def Star polyps. Might be green, but that is just the most common color variety in the hobby.

GSP grows like a weed I would put it up top against rear glass so it starts growing up the glass . I had a tank the GSP took over the whole rear glass was kind of neat . otherwise it could go wild taking over all your rock and coral

GSP for sure. In the right conditions it will spread rather quickly
