Hitchhiker ID

So I need some help ID’ing this hitchhiker that came with the small red/burgandy plate coral from saltwaterfish.com it looks like an anemone but I am not sure. It’s red with purple tips. It does not appear to be a manjo.  It’s on the left next to the plate coral/tounge coral Any ideas?

If it was green I would say duncan coral, but that would be hard to miss because you can see a duncan's skeleton.

It looks like the plate split off a baby possibly.

+1 it sorta looks like another plate?   Hard to tell based on the pic... Looks like one brown thing next to another lol.  It doesn't seem to be bothering the plate though so I'm guessing it's not an anemone, which would likely be irritating the plate coral.

 

Take a look after lights out and it should be more obvious what it is...  Skeleton = plate.  If it's an anemone I can't really tell what it is.
