New Live Rock - help identify something (with pics)

Hello Everyone

Well my green tank water has finally cleared so I can show you the new Liverock I got from Liverocks.com. I am also hoping you will help me identify what is this thing that came on my LR? Is it an anemone? It seems to be surviving OK so far.

First pic is of tank. Then I will post again a 2nd pic with the unknown item. I don't know how to put 2 pics in one post.

TIA
DJ

That is one large Aptasia, need to get some Joes Juice and kill that sucker before it spreads all over your tank. They are bad to have. I had to kill 20 or so myself form the same type rock but dont sweat it,

aptasia can be aggressive to corals but not much threat beyond that. Be careful because they do spread rapidly. I added a peppermint shrimp to my tank and it took care of them all but the 2 largest and I have not had any spreading since. As stated by thumper and suggested by many others Joes Juice works great.

Not sure about the pick and eat that sounds pretty sick. Stick it with some Joes Juice, if you try to pull it I hear they spread faster!

Ron at LR told me that they are not the kind that should be killed. They don't reproduce as fast and come from a different part f the ocean. But it's your call!
