I could just attempt to stab him and...

    Does anyone know what these things are and if they are ok. The end not attached to the rock has lots of short hairs. I was worried they are baby Aiptasia but has hairs at the end not tentacles, also they don’t retract into the rock when touched. The macro photo shows a ballpoint pen next...
