    Would someone please be so kind as to identify the following for me:

    http://www.peptojoe.com/images/splat.jpg

    Being new to the hobby, I've recently learned that not all things that look
    cool really are. Therefore, I'd like to be sure about what this is. I have
    2 or 3 of them on one small piece of live rock. This picture is of the
    biggest one, and it's about ½" in diameter.

    Thanks,
    PeptoJoe

    Joe is a friend of mine and he asked me what it was, my first thought
    was a rough mushroom, I have some Figi Purple Rough Mushrooms
    that were hitchhikers.
    But the bubble tips on that has me thinking I have seen those before,
    and it was posted that they were pests... It's too flat and "mushroomy"
    for a BubbleTip Anemoe, to me. It almost has a polyp look to the mouth area.

    Dunno, just in the back of my mind I thought I read they were pests, the
    distinct
    tips are what makes me think that. Very similar to a BTA..

    He lives out of town so I can't go look in his tank..

    It is a pest, it is a Manjo Anemone, often confused with BTA's
