Aptasia-x I believe IS kalkwasser. That will work the same if you don't feel like running around collecting kalk and syringes.

+1 Aptasia X will work. Cover that bad boy good!! And you'll never see it again. I had a stubborn one that kept coming back but I eventually got it lol. A few bottles but I got it.

Also your absolutely going to want to turn all the pumps off. Just like said before shoot it with the syringe like your feeding it, once it retracts cover that sucker and say bye bye bye...

Good luck!
