Looks like Aptasia or some kind of glass anemone. These are invasive pests. Need to remove/kill as much as possible. I personally use kelkwasser mixed to a think paste. Suck it up in a syringe and put a blob over them when I see them.

research aptasia And you will find many products/fish/inverts that may help to rid the tank of them.
Good luck. Happy reefing

Cover the mouth? Please elaborate.
I believe this person is talking about using a product such as aiptasia X by Red Sea, which you squirt on top of the anemone and kills it. I think your best bet to deal with them would be a peppermint shrimp or two. If any large ones remain, inject them with lemon juice and you should be done.
