Bad hitch hiker?

I noticed this in my tank the other day. It's tiny and in the center of the picture (just above the xenia). It is a greenish color with bright pink on the ends of the tenacles.

I know it's kinda hard to see but if you look in the center of the photo I think you'll see it.

Is this thing bad? I've inspected all of the LR and it's the only one I can find.

Thanks!

I think that it could be an Aptasia. Not 100% certain. Anybody else want to chime in?

I agree it looks like a Majano anemone. In relation to the aipstasia except I don't think they reproduce AS quickly. You might want to nuke it with some Joes Juice or something similar.

Yes, I am. I don't have quick easy access to joe's juice. Can I use something else?

Kalk paste injected into the mouth , if you can NOT get a syringe from a vet ,go to walmart to the utensil isle and get a meat injector that works well

kill it asap they will spread. Do not pull or squish it in the tank. Kalk and Joes juice works well

You can try either boiling water or lemon juice.
