New organism

Hi all,

Suddenly, in the last few weeks, this little thing has appeared in our tank...

Any ideas what it is? Sorry, the pic might be a bit hard to see.

Its about 10mm in diameter, and its brown-ish colour in the middle, with a green rim on the outside. Its quite pretty actually....

Thanks!!

It`s hard to see but it could be a green button polyp.

Agreed, Protopalythoa is my guess.
