Question Pest Identification - Looks like aiptasia color morph

Hey guys,

Looking to get a confirmation for whats attached to the base of my Cyrina. It reminds me alot of an aiptasia but its color morph isnt like one I have ever seen before. In the photo you can see it on the right side of the big green Cyrina sticking out from under it.

Thanks for the help in advanced!

It's a mojano pest anemone.


The only thing to fear is fear itself....and spiders.

Doesn't look like a Mojanao to me..
From what I've seen the tips of their tentacles are typically more rounded/bulbous...

Its some type of anemone though and could be an aiptasia..

I'd be far more concerned with those green rocks vs that little guy..

Being blunt and having fun
