Aiptasia or Rock Anemone can get out of hand because they split really fast. There's also a Rock Anemone from the caribbean that is called something else. I don't know if they're related, but I do know that Aiptasia are considered pests by many... peppermint shrimp will eat the small ones.

Well personally I've never had them as a hitchicker but someone here told me that they can reproduce easily and start stinging corals. They can grow out of control, but honestly I dont have them.

Yeah, their sting packs a whollop, so there is the danger of stinging corals (even fish) and doing some real damage. They do reproduce pretty fast and can be a real PITA to get rid of once they get established. If I were you, I'd get rid of it ASAP. There are a few different ways, Joe's Juice, injecting with kalk paste, injecting with VERY hot water, throwing the rock into a nuclear reactor, etc.....
