    Hello, as mentioned in this thread...
    https://www.fishlore.com/fishforum/saltwater-beginners/173527-first-saltwater-tank.html
    I am a newbie to the salt water world.
    I started my first tank on 6/28 with live rock and have since found a couple of hitch hikers.I first noticed this guy a few days after the initial startup, and tonight noticed he has moved to an area that is more directly in the current. Any ideas what I might have here?
    First spot noticed...

    It's an anenome of some sort I couldn't tell you which kind, hopefully someone will know the exact species.

    Manjano anemone maybe? If it is, I heard that they reproduce like crazy and hard to get rid of for some people.

    I've seen manjano problems in the past and that's what they looked like. Yes, they are a nuisance anemone and you will want to get rid of it just to be sure. I have a bicolor angel I could rent to you per diem fee if you like (this goes for people with aiptasia anemone too regarding my copperband butterfly) - they eat 'em :).
