It is a liquid, but when it contacts saltwater it kind of clumps up. You squirt it out of a syringe, and cover the oral disk of the aiptasia, then they swallow it. You treat each aiptasia individually, not the whole tank.

If you don't want to add anything to your tank thats not water just boil some and put it in a syringe and directly squirt it onto the aiptasias. Also I've never heard of lemon shrimps, sure your not thinking Peppermint shrimps?
