Aiptasia removal from coral frag

I bought aiptasia x to kill an anemone that hitched a ride on my live rock. That problem solved itself without the need to use aiptasia x (must have died during cycle?). Anyway, there is a LFS that has a great price on a coral I want but there are 2-3 aiptasia on the frag (not actually on the coral but attatched to the plug. Can aiptasia x reliably kill these before I introduce to the tank or would I be taking a huge gamble?

It can. If they are on a plug you can even scrape them off with the frag outside the tank even. Keep in mind, these things can move.

Uhmmm, problem is even simpler than that to fix, have them removed at the store before you buy it.
why should you have to deal with it?
If they want to make a sale, they should clean it up for you.
