    As the previous poster said, Aiptasia, a common pest anemone that can reach plague proportions if left to spread. You need to get rid of it asap.

    Prob not the best way to do it. If you left any bit behind it will grow back.

    You could try to inject a bit of vinegar into the hole where the aiptasia was or if you got kalkwasser maybe make up a bit of kalkwasser paste and plug the hole. These guys spread like wild fire and by pulling out with tweezers.....:y13:
