If the first image is aiptasia then what is the second image?

I have several clumps of these all over my reef tank on the live rock. It seems to like heavy water movement.

I apologize for the camera work it is my ipone camera, my camera is dead...

Looks like kalk paste

may be in order, they seem to spread very quick. I have not noticed any of the corals struggling for space near them, but that is probably just a matter of time.

I will try to coat them today and see how it goes.

Will things like Joe's Juice or Aiptasia X work or just stick to the tried and true?

Thanks guys!

I tried the Kalk Paste

apparently I did not let is sit long enough or did not use enough for the Colonial Hydroids survived. I turned off all water movement then covered Hydroids with a good helping of paste, let sit for 15 minutes before starting water movement.

After about an hour the Hydroids turned dark brown and looked like they may have been disolving? But this morning they are back and look as though they were never touched.

Could i have not put enough paste on them or should I coat them with Superglue after I cover them with the Paste?

Guess I will experiment...
