Help ID striped cone shaped item on live rock

Aquarium Advice - Aquarium Forum Community - Saratj1's Album: 47g Column Tank - Picture

I saw this thing slowly moving around in my tank on the live rock. I am curious to what it is because its nicely colored, but pretty small maybe the size of a pencil eraser. Any ideas? Thanks

it is not flat reminds me of a circus tent in shape, or cone shaped
