    Not majano, some kind of anemone. I also have one on my one zoa rock. I think they are fairly harmless

    Well like they say if ure unsure KILL IT. I have a paly zoa issue where they are overgrowing my ice cap zoas on one rock. One option is too scrape them off another idea is to try aiptasia x lol

    As Martin said, it's definitely not a majano. But they are really pretty! The easiest way to see if they are harmful is to look at the zoas/palys around them. If they are closed and looking unhappy, it's not a good thing, but if they are fully open, then it's not harmful. My Zoas close if there is a majano or aiptasia next to them.

    lol those are actually a different type of zoa, they are harmless and look pretty awesome under artinic and blue lights.
    I know them as rock pool zoas, but dont know whats the other proper name...
