What type of fish is that, and is it reef safe? Im going to look into this Joes juice, can you tell me a little more it sounds like the perfect answer. Also I couldn't view that thread, for methods of getting rid of aiptasia, I'm not sure why.

I got a syringe at a medical supply store and used lemon juice (not from concentrate) and injected into the stem (about 1 mL) and it was gone in 2 days. You have to catch it while it's extended and move fast, it retracts rather quickly when you stab it.

The aptaisia eating filefish is getting fairly popular in my area. I know of three store that have had them and can get them.

Can you tell me these stores, and are they online? Also what is the name of that fish? I want to add one more fish to my tank, and if I can get my hands on one of them that would be it.

Walmart has the syringes with the turkey basters. For injecting flavors into meat.

Kelso:

I'm in Canada, so they won't ship to the States. It is also the same shipping from the States to here. You need a special permit to import the fish and corals. I'm sure that there are lots of places in the States that can ship to you.

We have had good luck with aptasiaX.

The important thing to remember is that manual attempts at removal usually makes it worse. When aptasia are attacked, many times they release spores that create new anenomes.

Best bet is to shoot this aptasiaX right into their mouth. They usually close up and never return.
