Crap! I did the treatment like 2 hrs ago. It worked great. I did everything the way I should, but after waiting about an hr and a half with everyhting off (pumps, powerheads ect) I turned them on. Little white chunks of stuff went everywhere! Should I be worried?

Where did the little white chunks come from? Like from where you treated?

We purchased our syringe at fish2morrow. Only had one of those critters in our tank but still jumped to get rid of him

That was my response! I wish that had exotic looking plants such as this for freshwater!

Ya it came from where I treated. Everything seems fine, 4 out of the 5 I hit are gone completly. The last is half shrivled up, but still extends his tenticals. Im going to do another 5 tonight, and keep going untill Ive hit all I can see.

I hear that Butterfly fish love to eat aiptasia. I have a purple tang, flame angel, and a clown in a 40 breeder which is my display. Two twenty gallons are plumed into the tank, giving me 80 gal total volume. Could I add a butterfly, or am I maxed out as it is?

na..thats not how it works. you can have a thousand gallon sump plumbed to your 40 breeder and still won't be able to keep certain fish.
all of those fish and shrimp suggestions are hit or miss anyway. there is no way to tell for sure unless you actually add something and see. also, they might not eat the aptasia, but find your corals to be most appetizing.

good point. I have to add something though cause theres no way Im going to be able to get rid of all the aiptasia. The little ones I can see under pieces of rock I have no idea how Im going to get them.

I wouldn't worry to much, Some of my fish even eat the stuff. If you put to much on and some fall onto your Zoos and such, it will retard their growth. I have found it best to go slow and feed the X to the Aiptasia instead of just shooting the X onto the Aiptasia.
