corallimorph?

I bought some LR a few days ago from the LFS and last night my daughter noticed something on one that looks like a lil baby anemone. at first i thought it was a baby tube but realized ts on a rock not in the sand, and also its got lil balls on its tentacles... From what ive found online i think it might be an orange ball corallimorph. Is it ok in the tank? or is it going to be a nussiance? its very small, about half the diameter of a dime... i couldnt get a pic of it its so small and a clearish pink.. any ideas? please help

Sounds like it could be an aiptaisa, a pest anemone. If so your best bet is to get rid of it as soon as possible. Just google the aiptasia and see if it matches what you got in your tank

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
