    Well I know this will be hard without a photo but my camrea took a :pooh:

    On one of my snail shells the is a grey anemone thing. I did remove it cause i am paranoid. So you are thinking whats the issue... I think I have spotted one on my rock. Is it a pest??? Aiptasia?

    BTW it was really hard to scrape off the snail shell even with a razor blade. I did google an image of aiptasia it is similar but not as tall and shorter tenticles.

    Probably a Aiptasia or Majano. That would be my guess.
