Aiptasia

I bought a rock that has a whole bunch of mushrooms, feather dusters, etc. on it. Well, it appears that it also has a few little pest anemones/aiptasia on it. How do I get rid of the Aiptasia without hurting the mushrooms and everything? Can I get them off with tweezers or something? This is so frustrating because I have been so lucky so far and haven't had any bad hitchhikers. HELP!!!!

Joes Juice is what I use. Some have tried kalk slurry or lemon juice injected with a syringe.

I'm going to have to try the Joe's Juice also. I tried the lemon juice injections and thought initially that it worked, but mine came back within 2 weeks. Am sure it isn't new ones growing also. They grew back right in the same spots where I needled them. Hopefully the Joe's Juice will work better.
