ID Anyone?

Can anyone ID what this is? It is growing out of a "fossilized" snail shell on a piece of my live rock.

I look forward to hearing suggestions.

We used to have a separate reef tank and I remember being so excited to find this thing... then it began multiplying and taking over the tank. If I were you I would try to get rid of it as soon as you can, Realistik84.

correct, they will mulitply in time so removing them when possible is the best way. you can use things like aiptasia x or joes juice but i personally like turning off my pumps and squirting some pure 100% lemon juice into their mouths ( the center of the circle ) without bumping them. if you bump them, they naturally retract back into the rock which makes getting them difficult. turn off your pumps, fill a pipette up with some lemon juice, and squirt this bugger. hey when your done, use some of that lemon juice to mix up some fresh lemonade and enjoy your tank

That was funny....

Anyways, luckily in this case the rock this was on was pretty accessible, so I removed and chiseled the piece off to ensure I got to the "root" of the issue (no pun intended).

Thanks for everyones help!
