You can use Kalk paste, lemon juice, boiling water, Joe's juice and aiptasia X to name a few that will remove aiptasia. Google it for more on how shoot it in into them.

Happy Reefing,

I use peppermint shrimps, put about 8 in my 90G tank, killed the biggest aptaisia with Joe's juice and the shrimps took care of the rest. I have been aptaisia free for a year now...

I was at my favorite LFS, they have a bargain bin for corals, when I saw something similar poking its head out. It was pretty cool looking. The LFS guy said it was a Majano. I think that is what you are looking at there too. THey also have a big aptasia in the bin. I don't know why they would do that, but I have seen them at other stores. sell more Joe's juice?

when you say Kalk paste, you mean to mix the kalkwasser and water until it forms a paste?

Edit: Are those zoas $10 eagle eyes, or $100 nuclear eagle monter eyes?

Joe's Juice should take care of it. It even comes with it's own syringe. Just dot a little on to the eye of each aiptasia, and they'll shrivel up and disappear.

Peppermint shrimp going after aiptasia is a hit or miss. Some have had luck with them, and others haven't.

Any questions? Feel free to PM me.
