We bought peppermint shrimp. They ate every piece of aptasia we had. (we had a lot!) Saved us the hassle of trying to do the deed ourselves. Now the little suckers sit on the bottom of the tank sifting through our sand, swaying back and forth. They've gotten fat and happy and they are a blast to watch!

A little off topic but I've never thought about how hard it would be to find syringes. My entire family is in the medical field (husbands a firefighter/paramedic, brother is a critical care nurse, I managed a lab) we've got boxes of that stuff laying around the house. Medical supplies are useful. I used syringes to glue my wallpaper edges back together, lol.

We bought 5. We have 3 left. Our dottyback got a little feisty before she found a new home. They live together under our rocks. Now that there are no predators they come out front and hang out.

We have a 75 gallon DT and had some huge aptasia (bigger than mushrooms) and they ate them all. Some people have said that they won't eat the big ones but ours did. The biggest shrimp is about 2 and 1/2 inches long now.

Believe it or not you would probably be more likely to be able to get one. They feel giving out clean needs for drug use is better than spreading HIV around through the drug world.
