Aptasia x or lemon juice injected into it.

And either of those methods won't hurt any other fish or coral?

The Aptasia X should be fine if applied according to the directions. Same for the lemon juice.

I prefer taking the rock out if possible then using a lighter or soldering iron. Rinse after burning and add back to tank. This has been the best results for me so far.

Peppermint Shrimp will rid your tank of the smaller ones and the ones you can't see. I used Joe's Juice for the large ones.

Injecting kalkwasser mixed to a paste-like consistency will also kill them. It is also generally harmless so long as you don't go nuts with it and end up putting more than a teaspoon of the dry powder per 30 gallons of water at a time and don't lat it right on any corals.

I've also read about people using berghia nudibranchs, but I understand that they will die once they have eradicated the aiptasia unless they are relocated to a tank with that food source.
