    It's a Corynactis, also known as a Strawberry Anemone. They have the ability to sting other corals so just keep an eye on them.

    Other than them multiplying, you shouldn't have any issues with them. I saw a nano once that only had a bunch of majanos in it....it was actually kinda cool.

    Yep, ball anemone. Harmless and short lived.
