looks like aptasia. Turn off the pumps and go after them with aptasia-x

Kinda reminds me of a curly cue anemone we find here diving.

Does it have a stoney base at all? Sounds weird, but I've had a few duncans that have elongated their tentacles to look exactly like that. Just a thought.

Yep it's a curly cue and they are part of the Aiptasia family. I don't think they reproduce as badly as the smaller Aiptasia so it wouldn't be as invasive of a species as they are. Curly cue's are even sold in the trade but they aren't really popular since they in effect are just a big Aiptasia. So if you like it... Keep it!
