Aptasia outbreak in sump

It's cheap and it doesn't destroy stuff around it. And it's cheap.
It's a bit pricey but a friend of mine developed the manjano wand. It also zaps aptasia and has a long reach.

I shouldve known you two know each other. You've both had a saltwater reef going for a looong time.

Physically removing aiptasia from rocks is a mistake. They multiply when disturbed. Below is an excerpt from the attached link.

"While for many this may be their first reaction, extreme care should be used in this method. In attempting to remove Aiptasia anemones physically, every cell must be removed. You can not simply cut them up or brush them off. All that will result is many more Aiptasia returning a few weeks later. Since Aiptasia reproduce (quite effectively) by pedal laceration, tearing or breaking them up only serves to help them multiply much more quickly."

That's why my juice works well, you cover the pest with it. It leaves nothing to regrow.

I have applied AiptasiaX several times with no success. It was gone temporarily then a few weeks it regrow on same spot. I guess it depends on how it is applied properly more so if your tank is already being over run with Aiptasia. I introduced 2 peppermint shrimps and they gorge on them.

Try my stuff out and let me know what you think. It will cost 5 cents to make enough for a year.

That is good if you can reach everyone of them in your tank.

Just get some hard airline tubing and syringe. If you can see them you can kill them.
