ID wanted.

I've tried to take some pictures and search other forums, as well as the ID threads on this forum to no avail. I have some TINY little pink things in my tank on my live rock that are round and have tentacles that are almost clear, but have a "tip" that fluoresces yellow/green. There are may "projectiles" that come out of these things. I'd try to share pictures, but even with my DSLR on macro, they aren't very good. I haven't seen anything like them anywhere else... but I don't know what they are... thoughts?

Look up "ball anemone". Not sure if that's close, but it was my first thought.

They won't hurt anything, but can sting if you touch them. Generally they flourish in the shady parts of your rock work.

Could be Aiptasia or Majano. Nuisance and not desirable. Look of pictures of them.

Most definitely not majano or apatasia.
