    I have two of what I think might be some kind of anemone. They look like they have the same kind of structure but different colors. The picture of the green one is a bit blurrier due to it's position but I got some decent pictures of the other.

    I've never seen a striped aiptasia before. Arent they typicly clear to brown? This one is almost a purple under the actinics.

    The third picture looks like a majano anemone -- which is also a pest (very similar to aiptasia). You will need to take them out! ;)
