Default What are they? how to remove them?

Hi, the photos appear to grow Zoanthus but scattered throughout the tank, normally zoanthus not come off to colonize other parts of the rocks in the photo have also colonized the skimmer, those eating it? how can you delete?
Regards
Franco

If they spread so fast, nothing good. Looks similar to zooanthus but also reminds me a kind of aitapsia. You'd better try removing then as soon as possible. Perhaps with a wundermani or chelmon.

Yes, if you touch the rock as Aptasia slips away, it will be some other closely related species.

You got it! similar to Zoanthus but behaves like a Aptasia.
From 2 days I put in a Cantherines pardalis, I hope that eats them.

Hi,
I solved with this fish, it must look good to see some.
So I am not zoanthus as I thought but some varieties anemone.

Acreichthys tomentosus
