I couldn't tell what anything was in that pic. Wait to get them like said. The aptasia will spread a little more, but you'll have some food for your peps when you do get them

Kill the aptasia yourself. No need to add fish or shrimp. If you have no livestock, you can remove the rock and scrape it off, burn it with a lighter, pour boiling water on it, cover it with kalkwasser.....

Mr. X, I have a tank full of livestock. There is a mushroom but 2 inches away from one of its tentacles.

Oh. Then use some kalkwasser. Mix it up in a thick paste, turn off all pumps. use a syringe (less the steel tip) and squirt some in the center of the anemome. When it shrivels up, cover the rest with more kalk.
i've used peppermint shrimp with success, but it's not a 100% effective solution, like kalkwasser (used correctly) is.

I use Aptasia X, it's about $10-15 at the LFS. It comes with the syringe and needles, everything you need, in the box. It's quick and easy and I've successfully killed about 5 Aptasia so far.
