Tom, any links about info/studies of these "Wonder-Nudi's"?tdwyatt said:heh! Alyson Hannigan ROOLES...
btw, definitely Anemonia cf. majano, although it is distinctly different from the mediterranean Anemonia viridis. I am not sure that with all the changes in the taxonomy of this group of genera that Anemonia is the correct genus, but they do have many common characteristics, ad it seems to be the accepted genus for the time being.
These little pests are worse than spp. iun that they will quickly overrun a stony coral and use the dead skeleton as new real estate for a cluster of colonies. Delbeek and Sprung report that the nudibranch Spurilla neopolitana is a means of controlling this nuisance anemone. I cannot confirm this, but may post on Bill Rudman's site for some type of confirmation and report the findings here.
You probably didnt get as lucky as you think, cause it probably is Anemonia majano , a small anemone which most people consider to be a pest. In most cases, this anemone can reproduce quickly and spread thoughout the tank, and like Aiptasia, can sting its neighbors quite badly. It's unlikely that you will find a biological control such as peppermint shrimp for these, however you probably will have better luck using an injection of limewater if you find that they must be controlled in your tank. For further reading, you can check out Terry Siegel's Article on Aquarium Frontiers where he describes his use of Chaetodon lunula for control of Anemonia (which should only be used in extreme cases in this author's opinion).
