It's an aptasia anemone. A pest best removed or killed before it can multiply. They can sting corals, and reproduce rapidly.

am I the only one who likes these guys?.... nobody loves me, everybody hates me... guess I'll just eat worms!!

A quick shot of kalk paste (mrs wages pickling lime in RO water) or adding a few peppermint shrimp should do the trick!

They are just fine as long as they stay in the sump.

I like them and have a few in my DT as of now since I don't have much corals, I guess it gives me something more to look at and they are great part of the CUC. :D But once I start getting more coral and they start taking over, some peppermint shrimp are going to have a feast.
