    So i'm new to saltwater and bought some live rock, and these two buggers started to grow shortly after set up. I was first told its aiptasia and after asking someone else they said it was harmless. If anyone can clear it up, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks like ball tipped anemones to me. I have them also. Everything I have found online says they are harmless.

    Just to stay safe you should remove it NOT kill it if you can.
