    To get it off the rock, take a butter knife and press the flat side (not the blade) against the base of the anemone. It should let go.

    If you can get to the foot, an ice cube works great. ;)

    Those are vermited snails.:D They feed but casting a web to catch food particles.Then they'll reel the food in.
    Harmless for the most part except the webs can irritate corals.
