    Hi can anybody ID these? Excuse the quality, these are zoomed in screen shots of a video that I took. Hopefully somebody knows what they are.

    @Juan27

    I googled Majano but it doesnt look the same, the ones in my photo have jagged/spikey tentacles, not smooth like aiptasia or majano? I am no expert either.

    That looks more along the lines of what I have with regards to the tentacles, could they be something bad also? If they are not Anthelia?

    Oh good! I will keep an eye on them and if they get bigger or more I will update here with hopefully better pictures to get a better ID. Thanks
