    I moved my rockwork around and found this thing on it, with a few smaller colonies in the same area. It's about the size of a nickel.

    I agree with Civiccars, it looks like an anemone.

    Next step, identifying the species. I think it might be a bulb anemone?

    Bulb anemone is the same as a bubble tip. The more I read into it, their are Ricordia anemone and Ricordia mushrooms??? Maybe someone can shed some light on this question.
