Hello, I would like to know what exactly hitchiked onto one of my uncles new coral. We have no idea what this is and can not seem to get an ID on it. It's a little bigger then a quarter, resembling a small anemone. We know it's not aiptasia. It is light sensitive, it moves, the tentacles are not finehaired-they are a few cm thick and today we have noticed another much smaller one, sharing the same coral. My mother accidently touched it, but it did not zap. It really, doesn't harm anything.

Any ideas?

While it's extremely difficult for me to see the pics (I guess fishlore is still having issues), I'd guess it might be a Majano, especially if there are two of them. Still a pest anemone, just much more nice to look at than aiptasia.

The one is majano .It is just a pest anemone .
If their is something in the Green Star Polyp [GSP] it is likely a nudibranch that looks very much like the GSP..It eats GSP and should sorted out as more of a priority then the majano .
