    Does it have a hard skeleton? Could possibly be a Diaseris sp. or something along those lines if it has a hard skeleton.

    I agree with Eric
    It might be a plate coral if there is a skeleton
    If not, then I say majano

    Mouth is wrong for a plate. It's right for an anenome.

    Rock flower nem or bta. Could be a majano but I agree that the tents look wrong.

    Seems to be a split on what it is so I'll leave it alone and see what happens

    +1 on removing it.
    If it's something that's not horrible, and maybe you can actually tell better once you get it off, the great another frag for the tank. If it is something horrible, the last thing you want is it multiplying and making plans for total tank domination while you're waiting to see if if it does anything.

    -1 on removing it. Only because I love Mike's mental image of it staring back at you and plotting total domination while you dither.
