What is this? Looks like an anenome not sure though

It acts like an anenome with a mouth in the middle and it grabs food I feed it.

Anemone

This is another anemone I have in the tank. Is this a condylactus giganea and the little one is its baby? Are these things really bad and will they kill my other corals and inverts?

That looks like the same pic I looked at earlier, Maybe I didn't get a link to the first anemone, that one looks like a condy as well.

Condys have a very potent sting and if it were to go on the move, or it is within reach of other corals and inverts i the tank, it coul cause problems.

The second picture is the Condy.....the first one is a BTA, IMO.

I always have the hardest time telling the difference between a Majano and a BTA. Does it seem to be popping up all over - spontaneously reproducing? Then I'd guess Majano. Majanos, IMO, though, tend to resemble zoanthids a little more than the pics in the first post. The one shown does display very BTA-like tentacle ends.

How big is it? And, do you know what type of LR it is?

Hes been there for about 9 months now. Its the only one. I have Fiji live rock which is 3 years old in the tank. He just popped up one day. And got bigger and bigger. Hes about 2 inches now.

Well, based on that, I'd have to agree with BTA Just keep an eye out that you don't get a bunch of them popping up all over - that would indicate Majano. Very cool hitchhiker!!!
