LR Residents: Zoanthids or Aiptasia? or Both?

Can anyone please help me identify these guys? I set up my Biocube 14g this weekend with "cured" LR from a LFS. 24 hours later I noticed dozens of these guys concentrated on one of the rocks. My first impression is that they are aiptasia but I'd like to be sure before I start killing them off! Thanks.

I'd guess aiptasia but the tentacles look shorter than I've seen. Does it retract into the rock if you try to touch it? On the bright side, I like the rock!

Thanks YeahitsK. Yes, most of them retract into the rock when I touched them. However, there is one that did not and it differs slightly from the rest. It has longer tentacles and is more like two fans facing eachother in shape (rather than the circular shape of the rest). Does this change your opinion at all?
