Order some Joe's Juice or use use a kalk solution in a syringe or boiling water or lemon juice in a syringe.

If you are already infested they will keep coming back. The only way to rid the tank of them at that point is to "cook the rock"...That does not mean putting it in a 350 oven. It means putting it in a container with fresh sw mix a heater and ph, but covered so it gets no night. Every two weeks move the rock to another container of fresh sw (need at least two buckets/containers. It could take a full year of cooking to kill all the manjo.

I think they are Majano anemones and they are just as bad, although they look pretty neat.

Yeah I had Manjo running through my mind, but I've always seen colourful ones, never plain ones like that.

They are just as bad. They have a nasty attitude and sting anything. Klakwasser on to the oral disk will work well.

I don't think you are understanding.

You have two different species in the tank. The small ones in your video are aptasia. The ones in the picture is a different kind of anemone.

In case all of our points weren't getting across.. Manjano and Aiptasia anemones are BAD. They will ravage your tank and multiply ridiculously, and then they will sting and kill any coral that is in your tank. So.. the both of them are NOT good to keep.. at all.

It's a pity because Manjos actually look nice.
