aptaisa sure are strong

i have one that is literally growing on the bottom of one of my live rocks. It is submerged about 90% of the time under gravel. I only see it when my pistol creates a burrow there maybe like once a week, but its still growing...

my peppermint shrimp has not even taken care of 1 little aptaisa either

If your peppermint shrimp isn't eating ur aptasia it is prob because he's not hungry enough Try only putting enough food in for ur fish to eat and let him get really hungry...he will go right for the aptasia

Agreed, lemon juice worked for me. Also buy another peppermint and see what happens I had good luck with them to.

Yeah check out your lfs ask them if they feed aspistas to them. My lfs throws in some rock or if you bring your rock in they let you leave it there for a couple of days to feed them. Maybe add a few more!
