Aiptasia, a mystery?

Looking at these forums, i become terrified of these devilish anemones ! Everywhere i turn i hear stories of troublesome anemones that never go away! I have 3 corals in my tank now, and i wanted to stock the whole thing full of coral, but suddenly i noticed that ive never had these anemones once and ive had the tank for 2 months. I dont have this juice or peppermint shrimps either. should i be afraid ... Will they rear their ugly head anytime soon?

my guess is if you have not seen them by now you are safe but watch everything you add to the tank for them

Put some pepermints in there, just in case.

Ive had a 180 reef, 7 gallon nano reef, and 29 FOWLR and never had one aiptasia. I think I just got lucky!

Peppermint Shrimp will eat them down.

They really aren't a big deal just don't let them spread.

Angelfish are vulnerable, otherwise my tank could care less.
