Hrmmmmmm!

We actually have something similar to what he described in our tank on our live rock(tank is only about 5 weekish old). But they don't look like that picture. We have white and rustish colored ones but their "tenticles" arent tube-like as the one in the picture they looke more "feathery". Does anyone know what they could be? One of our white'ish ones actually looks like a pale lilac color. Another thing is all of a sudden some brown algae has appeared on the side of the tank, on the heater and the 2 middle tubes of the UGF...its isolated to that area only...is this bad? It seems odd =) My digital camera will be here any day now(bought a cheaper used one until I can find a better one for sale) so I will send pictures.

Reef, is yours like the picture or do yours have "feathery" tenticals also?

Thanks as always!!

Wow thats funny...what do you mean boiled?

I wonder if someone could tell me why you don't want them, and how much lemon juice do you inject?

Thanks again

hara i never heard that we have a rock with 2 of them that can go in so deep that you can not inject if we take the rock out of the tank and boil it will it cause a die off issue when we readd it to the tank?

these aiptasia were localized in one area, on a point of a rock. I boiled water in a pot and then held the rock in the water, just the part that had the aiptasia on it. Then after the rock cooled, i returned it to the tank. it does not cause a die off, as you have sterilized that part of the rock...nothing left to die and rot. it is dead and off.At least I have never had problems with it and i guarantee you, the aiptasia does not come back. just make sure the rock totally cools before returning it to the tank.
