This might be a viable option, but I would ensure you pull that shell off outside of the tank. Remember glass anemones can reproduce themselves from just 1 shell, and pulling them will send shards of them everywhere, hence their name sake.

Just achieved removal using your method, I eventually got it right and it moved on top of the shell and both are now in the bin

I had a few on a large piece of rock and removing it from the tank would of caused a big problem, also it had 3 different corals attached so using chemicals just wasn't a good idea, I used a 2 part putty to plug the hole where the little critter was growing and if that didn't work I would inject boiling Water into crack,

That was my first one and hopefully the last!! I don't like using chemicals either, I like your boiling water idea tho and will try using that if any others appear
