Curly Q anemone bloom

Some sites say these die in a clean reef aquarium, but not mine!

When the first one showed up as a hitchhiker, I thought "cool". Then more and more appeared. After two months, there are >20 with no end in sight. I would like to bring tem under control (I wouldn't mind a few), but I don't want to do anything that would threaten either of my bubble anemones, corals, fish, etc. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you have aiptasia rather than curlyqs Peppermint shrimp are noted for eating them, as well as the copper band butterfly (but if you get one of these get the Austrailian, no chance of getting a cyanide caught fish). You can also inject them with kalk paste, white vinegar, or lemon juice I am also hearing great things about a product called Joe's Juice, although I've never used it.

I have a friend who had a HUGE aiptasia problem... Based on his experience, I'd say the peppermint shrimp is the cheaper and better way to go.
