ID needed...
What are these, there are four, just noticed on this large piece of live rock.

Really really small, a deep red coloration. There is one that seems to have extended some short tenticles and three others next to it in a little group that seem closed right now.

These are the best shots I got.

That is what I was thinking, do they grow in groups like this?

no not apitasia if I was looking at it right

aiptasia is kinda see through, not colored
looks like a little Zenia head sorta, so IMHO its not aiptasia

probably a little zoa or a polyp thingy of some kind. Wont harm anything, I always think that some of the cool clingons you get on live rock can be pretty cool, like feather dusters :lol:

I don't think it's an aptasia, but it is an anemone. It's like a Majano anemone, i can't remember it's name. Something like this when it's fully open
or it looks like it has clear tenticles.
