that was my first thought when you guys first started discussing lasers.
Seems to be the best solution, no degradation from the glass/acrylic and the pin-point accuracy decreases the risk to other critters.

you could use a length of 1/2" rigid clear plastic tubing the required length and glue a lens on one end, secure the laser inside and then use a length of something like 1/4" rigid tubing to manipulate the switch.
you could even rig it up like a syringe to work the switch.

Dary's tank!

Personally , it works great for me out of the box , I started off with prob about 20 aptasias that I couldn't get with the aptasias x and now I really have to hunt around to find one to blast ,... Hence that's why the zucchinis " are on high alert " lol , not sure why all the discrepancies but mine works great . Focus ,focus ,focus

Not too much going on in my tank world of interest ,.. I cleared out a few more of the hairy mushrooms that are getting to be a total pain in the butt , on a positive note the bubble coral that I got a couple of months back is doing well and has expanded 3-4x it's original size and looking healthy , the little orange hammer coral that came at the same time likewise seems happy and healthy , my surviving Martian chalice is also seemingly fully recovered and looking happy ,..And if the Martian chalice is happy then Dary's happy too! Amazing what happens when your alk and calcium is back up to snuff !!

They are totally invasive and once they get going there's no stopping them ... They choke out and smother anything in their way .., the only way I've found out how to get them out is by using something like a chisel to try and cut them off the Rock they've moved to and my god do they ever stink when you remove them from the water !!! Fortunately they're pretty chewed up by then... I don't think I'd even send these to my worst enemy !!! I was hoping that my laser would nuke em but nah it doesn't

Ill try not to fat finger it this time, have tried aiptasia x it seems to work on other soft bodied pests and if it doesn't no harm done, I can't imagine trying to chisel away at something in my tank

Interesting idea ...It's the one thing I wish I never put into my tank ... If it'll only stay in one spot then maybe I'd tolerate it BUT it doesn't ... I'm going to try the laser again
