A lot of Kalk can raise your ph, this is why vacuuming out any excess after the killing is a good idea. It does not take much of an injection to kill these, as long as you get Kalk into the Aiptasia at some point, it should be dead. Also, I would do the tank sections at a time if you are worried about it. With over 100, it will be critical that you keep on top of it for a while. As soon as you seen any return, Kalk it right away.

Eventually I do think you can win against the Kalk. Too bad your Peppermints did not munch on the stuff.

I know the feeling, I was worried about Kalking my tank and I do not even have any fish or corals yet. Start with a few and see how it goes. Check the surrounding area for any die back until you feel comfortable about it.

The kalk will stay in the area injected. Just start killing in a certain area and return to that area after injecting the rest. Then go through and vacuum up excess in the same order. You should be fine. The thick kalk just sinks, as long as ph is off.
Kind fun the first few times.

Strongly advised. If some remains not a big deal. But if you zap as many as it sounds like you need to, then you would have a good amount in the tank. At the same time, you would probably be able to suck up the dead Apt as well. Stuff works pretty quick
