Didn't work for me either. They just popped right back up the following days and weeks. Even direct hits with the near boiling water didn't work. Joes Juice worked in an instant.

I imagine my water could have not been hot enough (Which I don't think is possible, it was almost boiling!), or the aiptasia was just too quick to retract.

Yup exactly what mine did. I was right on them when I squirted them. They were gone for the night and maybe the next day, but were back soon after.

Rougly how much water did you squirt on them? Sounds like it was not enough to "heat" them up enough.

there was quite a bit in there. Had a big turkey baster and was about half full. either way, joes juics was cheap and resolved the problem in one try and didnt hurt anything else in the tank.

Do NOT go with a copperband butterfly. There are much better options (like the ones discussed in this thread) than getting a fish. CB have a low survival rate, and grow quite large.
