Help to ID
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have had this ??? for over six months. It was less than a quarter of this size when it appeared. My tank is an established Nano 12 gal which has been running well over a year. Live Rock in tank and Live sand was used also. Could this have been a hitchhiker of sorts either via the Live Rock or with the other Corals that are in the tank. I have one Button Polyop. Used to have two, but the other didn't survive.
Can anybody ID this for me. It is growing slowly, hasn't shown to bother fish or shrimp or other Corals.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

It's either an anemone, glass/aptasia, or maybe a fungia plate... can you get a closer shot?

No. Limited by camera zoom and glass on aquarium.
Other people have mentioned fungia plate. But some pictures I have seen don't look like what I have.
On the aptasia pics I have seen the tentacles are much thinner with other small differences compared to what I have.

Here's an aptasia that i had in my tank that got huge because i thought it was cool and good for the tank... until it tried to eat some corals...

Looks like it could also be a Rock anemone (doubtful, but possible) or a variety of frilly (hairy) mushroom.
