Yes that’s a toadstool. Annoying is probably putting it mildly. It could be that the anemones are stinging the hell out of it, and in response, the toad is excreting a bunch of toxins to try to keep them away. Should probably be running some carbon and get some space between the toadstool(s) and anemones.

You might be able to kind of peel it off the rock. I think I’ve seen someone suggest that. Not really sure though. It’s either that, or cut it off and attach it to something else. Only way I can think of doing it.

A few threads said toadstools can be sliced at the base and re-attached. Some also said peeled off. It looks like your zoa patch is also going to be consumed. Here's a post for the toadstool that might help:

My btas touch a lot of different things. Never had long term problems. Neighbors may get irritated but they always come right back within a day or so. Hope this ends up being the case on your end.

PS.
You'll know if it's attacking it. Keep a good carbon setup Incase the softy decides to go chemical.
