The one on the left looks like a huge aptasia anemone, the one of the right I suspect is the same. They do grow and spread like crazy. There are lots of threads on how to get rid of aptasia, a product called Joe's Juice is always highly recommended.

To be honest, Fluff is a great resource for ID'ing stuff, but I am thinking the one on the left is a Haitian Reef Condy Anemone. But if you are saying they are all over the place I agree, they could be aiptasia.

Yes this stuff is growing everywhere there are about 12 of them.

do you think lemon juice or hot water would be better to inject into my tank?

You can try boiling water, just be careful to not get it on any other corals. Joes Juice is great and safe for other corals.

Looks like aptasia. You can try injecting them with hot water. I've seen people inject them with different highly concentrated calcium buffers and they can still survive. I think the best thing would be a peppermint shrimp. They usually do a good job.

My peppermint shrimp only ate one of mine, so there is no guarantee.

My LFS sells this stuff that in a syringe minus the needle that has a salt paste in it. You put a glob in the mouth area and it will swallow it and then disintegrate.

I think they make it. I got mine for twenty dollars. A little high but it works the first time every time.

I can vouch for this stuff...

http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...28&N=2004+2035

Blue Life's 'Aptasia Control' was the only thing my LFS had. It nuked some small ones of mine. Not sure how it'd do with that monster though. I'm another one that has had good luck with peppermint shrimp. After nuking all the baby aptasia I had, I put in a peppermint. I've never seen another one since.
