Burning them, injecting with lemon juice, squirt with boiling water, removing the rock they're on to dry out.

Then there are the products used to kill them: Aiptasia X (used myself and it worked well), Joe's Juice, and kalkwasser paste

Would putting lemon juice in your tank not be a bad idea

If you're injecting the aiptasia with a syringe and don't overdo it you'll be fine. But it can cause pH issues if you overload the aips or do too many at one time

I got mine at a local pet store that sells shots, try tractor supply. You can also try fresh water injections. I have found that lemon juice does work better than aiptasia x.

You can buy at walmart but you have to sign a log that you are not using them for anything against the law. At least that`s what mine does.
