Its aptasia. Do Not dig it out- will cause more aptasia to form.
Using a syringe, inject either, lemon juice or Preferably kalk powder mixed into a thin paste and inject into center core of aptasia and it will melt away

No need to remove. Inject aptasia and walk away. They'll melt down immediately
 

So what do you think about running carbon as a filter for your aquariums?
