Aptasia treatment?

I have quite a large amount of aptasia growing round my Pulsing Zenia and i was told if it continues to grow at the same rate it would choke out my coral. Does anybody now any treatment except boiling water?

I've heard of lemon juice doing well as well... Personally, I have had no luck with those treatments and used Aiptasia-X, another product is called Joe's Juice, and had great results. Using the needle to shoot the junk right into the glass anemone's mouth works wonders. I even bury them in however much I have left in the syringe since there is no negative effects of the product being in the tank.

Aiptasia-X doesn't work for me either. I applied 3 times and after several days they pop up again each time. My peppermint shrimp took care of it.

Same here. Aiptasia X was a waste of $15.
