Aptasia. If your able to take that rock out of the tank the best course of action would be to scrub as much of it as you can off the rock, rinse with saltwater then cover the spot where the base was with superglue or epoxy. If you can’t remove them I would try to shove a big chunk of epoxy in there to completely cover the thing where it can’t escape or leak out through anywhere. If the release planulea or even pieces of there body will turn into more. Most of the stuff they sell in the market to kill them will only cause them to spread once they die. I know it seems drastic but if they begin to multiply you will have to go through hell to get rid of them later. Good luck.
