I see what looks like one of these on a rock and now its two of them after some weeks, when I touch it with a turkey baster it retracts, I thought if it was a Aiptasia or Majano that it wouldn't retract if bothered, can someone assist, I will try to provide some pictures in the morning my camera sucks..

I was told a majano would close up but not retract. Aiptasia usually do but not always.

This has some info on both. I was trying to find a pic here someone had of a really pretty majano, I think they actually kept it but wouldn't recommend. May have been pretty but they still had to remove several when it began to spread. Cant find the thread now.

mojanos will retract, really deep too, untill they look like a closed zoo. you might have to keep messing with it, but it will, i had one that was decent looking, kinda redish/maroon, till it split and i nuked it.

yeah just use kalk paste in a syringe like the ones you get in salifert test kits, and plop a small glob on its mouth... and poof! Aptasia gone!
