What is this???

So I am looking around my aquarium today with a flash light and I came across this thing hanging up-side-down in a LR cave. This is the first time I have seen this creature and i am not sure what it is. Honestly, it looks like a tiny green bulb tip anemone. But it is not in the light at all so I don't think that is what it is. Anyone have any ideas?

tiny bubble tip sounds like a mahano (not sure on spelling, maybe majano?) anemone. also a pest anemone, can take over tank.

Thanks for the replies. It does not look like any aiptasia that I have seen before. It is very close to the hole my peppermint shrimp lives in so maybe I will make it more "available" for my copperband. Thanks!
