That is a pretty cruddy picture, but it is an anemone. Doesn't really look like aiptasia, but hard to tell in that picture.

Cesar is right. Glass anemone, closely related to aiptasia...

 

Doesn't spread as fast but more of a sting and definitely a pest.

It's a b.a. anemone. (That's b!tch-ass anemone, lol.) I'd nuke it if it were in my tank... GNARLY-strong sting either way, and my reasoning beyond that: if it's an Anemonia species, it'll reproduce like bunnies and walk around stinging everything; if it's a "Curly-cue", it'll get fairly large (I've seen them with a 3" oral disc and 4" long tentacles) and a SUPER-GNARLY sting! lol
