I have a cheap blue laser that can burn them if your glass is clean. Will send it to you if you want, but it comes with a pair of goggles and I wouldn't want anyone else in the room as you use it.

And you should be. A stray reflection at these energy levels can blind you in a instant. Lasers were my thing in college. It worries me when I see posters using them without eye protection.

Yikes! I would be worried where out was reflecting off of the glass. Can out hurt your skin or just eyes?

Oh, it can burn you if it is similar to some of the ones I've seen. It'd take some effort though.

I would be only worried about reflective damage to your eyes. Goggles eliminate that risk.

Do they serve any other uses besides aiptasia? In reef aquaria or other practice use.

Not much. The laser usually come from old blueray players. It can be fun burning black flies from across the room. But I never ever point it into the sky. As a pilot I know how bad that can be.

Greg, I'd be interested in trying this on the gym tank. It's got more majanos than corals. How can I obtain one of these?

Maybe not a flop. It will just be hard to see something so small in a very large tank without the fantastic voyage ☺.
My first name is Barbara. I've been in the aquarium hobby for 25 years but just in the last 2 1/2 Years starting getting into the salty side of things. I have had a lot of help from people like Paul, sniper, seaweed, and autumn and i try to give help back when I can. Its been a blast chatting with all of you. I've learned a lot as well.
