Please id. I'm concerned

Please I'd
Just found this. What is it? Tank is extremely young and this is the first thing I've found growing.
It's got high light and med-high flow.
Reddish brown in color, stands about 1/4 inch tall and is about 1/6 in in diameter. Anyone know?
For some reason I can't post pic. Sorry. It looks like a paly I think. Please post pic with guess so I can compare. I'm extremely curious to know what it is. Thanks!

You have limited space for pics. You can either become a supporting member which greatly expands attachment space, upload to an album on AA or upload to photobucket or flickr.

Okay so it's an alien! I'm unsure if it's normal for this "thing" to eat shrimp slightly larger than it. (Moderator edit) is it normal for tiny tiny things to eat shrimp? And how in the hell did it even get it. Also, will it grow large enough to eat me overnight in my sleep O.O
I'm new so if it's common to have monsters in your tank don't laugh at me lol

Although it seems to have grown.... Oh god :| lol, it hasn't moved. It gotta be some kind of coral. Any guesses? Grayish foot, reddish brown disk like head with 2 layers of tentacles around the edge of the disk, and catches frozen shrimp with the tentacle things then wraps shut around it then swallows it. Med-high flow high light. First thing I've found on my dry rock. tank inhabitants 2 young clowns and 2 red hermits and a sponge. Any guesses will be greatly appreciated.

Majano are a real pain in the butt. They can take over a tank. I would treat it just as you would aptasia.

Yup. Need aptasia x. Or I'll give it face full of supplements doubt it'll respond well to that.
