Just noticed these neon orange/red polyp lookin things on my rock today. Have to say I have never seen these before. They are like highlighter bright, and almost look to be clear inside . They stand out like a sore thumb. Anyone? Sorry for the crappy cell phone close ups.

They almost look like some sort of Zoa or Polyp.

Yeah the weird thing is that they are kind of transparent.

Looks like some sort of algae to me, I have halymenia that goes neon orange also orange bubble algae.

Thats kinda what I thought too. The shape is similar to some red bubble algae I have in my fuge.

Ya I've had that algae before. It ends up turning green if I remember correctly. It really stands out under blue light but I remember it going away pretty quickly.
