Growing in my intake chamber. Aptasia?

Aptasia? I found this on the wall of my intake chamber. 

Not sure what it is and if I should remove it from the tank altogether. Not sure if its a type of aptasia since its almost translucent. Thanks for your help

Looks like a kind of sponge.

Give it a poke for me and let me know if it reacts.

Should I Leave it alone.,move to the tank or get rid of it?

Yep, aiptasia. Unusual color, might be from growing in the dark. Aiptasia-X it, or drain the tank just enough to fully expose it, wait for it to retract fully, then cover it in liquid superglue to kill it. Don't try to scrape it off, the bits that can scatter will potentially grow into more.
