Also remove that white sponge thing. It will grow and kill your zoos or other corals. From experiance.

should i just take my tweezers to it? and should i remove all of them even the orange and red ones?

Looks like a majano anemone, nuke it. And I wouldn't worry about the white sponge or any others in your tank.

I'd leave the sponge alone (upper right hand corner of the first picture). It can be trimmed as needed if it should start to overgrow corals. It can be removed with some tweezers, although some scraping might be required to get the last few bits.

should i just take the rock out and tweez the majano?

I used a small metal brush and a toothpic. I removed the frag for this and diped in container as i removed the spong. More trouble then its worth. Why worry about trimming something that isnt really needed and taking space another wanted coral to grow.

Stab it in the mouth with a shot of kalk paste. poof. gone.

It's not an anemone. It's a juvenile Fungia coral. Don't kill it.

I also agree with Bertoni about the sponge. It's a white sponge. There are literally thousands of them and there's no way of knowing if it will become a problem, but odds are that it won't. I've got numerous species in my tank and none of them pose any threat to corals.

It looked like a majano to me, still does, but I'd trust Greenbean's ID.
