Yes I was actually eyeing it for a few weeks. Should have put the name. It was sitting in a bio cube in the front of my lfs for about a month acording to the owner. My buddy has a white one that hes had for a while. Hes the one I discused getting it with, he told me about there difficulty. Then I went to get some fish food and ended up walking out with this coral. Figured I could keep him, but I didnt know aiptasia were that bad. They havent really effected my coral from what I can see, but then I may be looking at the wrong things. All I can see is a crap load of them, but the coral still grow some even rub on the aiptasia and seem fine. So your saying I have to get rid of the coral in my tank before even treating with aptasia even though the box says it will not harm coral.

its just that you've got SOOO much aptasia in that tank. As you kill them and they dies off, things are gonne be kinda funky for a while. While the coral is healthy, I'd take it back for as much of a refund as you can get and start going to battle with the aptasia.

you don't have to remove the coral in order to kill the aptasia. just don't try and treat them all at once. do a few at a time. keep an eye on your ph.
the goniopora probably won't survive either way.
