Aiptasia advice

First want to thank everyone in advance for your help. Also say hello and thanks for such a great site and app. I've got about a year under my belt on salt water with this tank and just got it fairly settled in. I was unsure what the Aiptasia were until just recently. I had one that came in on a coral and it looked cool enough, I thought ok...
Now they are spreading, maybe 11 or 12 at that point I started searching and discovered what I had. Anyone had this before and won? Grateful for any suggestions ........

Aptasia-x and peppermint shrimp. As long as you get the right peppermint (ones from the atlantic I believe) it should eat the smaller ones. Aptasia-x works wonders as well.

No it comes with a syringe and you put it right in the mouth of the aptasia, which dies in about a minute. Only downside is you have to do each aptasia. Which is why the peppermint shrimp is nice, it gets the ones you don't see/ don't want to get haha.

with aptaisia x you want to kill the pumps so execces dosn't get sent all over the place and possibly harm your good corals. a couple of pepermint shrimp and light feeding should take care of them.
