No they are not that sensitive at all, and can easily go ten minutes or more out of water with no ill effects, in fact i do this all the time. Also in the position the aiptasia is in you should have no problem as far as hurting it. Ive squirted all kinds of corals and as said have used hundreds of times. Not one time didnt anything become affected. I would bet my tanks on it.

29g Mixed Reef, 150w 14k Phoenix MH w/ Moonlights, Reef Octopus BH1000 HOB Skimmer, Ecotech Vortech MP10es, ReefKeeper Lite (Plus), PH Probe, Temp Probe, ATO, Carbon/GFO Reactor.

This is what I have done as well. Has not negatively effected my corals.
