Aiptasia

Are there lots of different types of aiptasia? And if so are the all as harmful as eachother or are there more harmful species than others?

Also what is the beat way to get rid of these? They are too small to inject and I have some polyps on the rock that they are on!

Any help would be appreciated! I have just recently started coral and I don't want to loose everything already!
