no clue anemone

I have what looks like some sort of anemone growing from a LR from LR.com

It is a brownish green color with a large "head" with small tentacles around the outside. There are also tentacles on the head closer to the mouth in what appears to be a random pattern. The mouth is a small white/tan slit. If i put my hand or a tool in the tank to clean the algae it will retract down into a hole in the LR. I've looked through different links in this forum but have yet to find anything that looks like it. Sorry I have no photo.

It's gotta be a feather duster. They are a type of tubeworm, I wouldn't worry about him he won't harm anything. Actually a lot of pet stores sell em. I got one like 8 inches long.

Clam said it had a head and a slit mouth. My vote is that it is probably an aip.

Aptaisa. Of course lr.com says they don't live where they get our rock. They say it's a rock anomone.

Here is my rock anemone at a very young age. It was on the lr, when I got it. The pic after that is what it looks like now. 3 months later.

Put a peppermint shrimp in your tank. If it eats it then it is/was an AIP....
