I injected mine with a kalk paste through a syringe. It wiped them out in one shot. I would squirt some in the mouth when they closed up I would Inject the stock. It's time consuming but did the trick.

Is this kalk paste something you buy or something that needs to be mixed on your own? Just curious.

I have tried AiptasiaX several times. It would be gone for a while and then it would sprout again on the same spot. Peppermint shrimp did it. Get 3 or 4 and they will surely feast on them.

I would try a couple peppermint shrimps as well as manual removal.

I have had 2 peps in my tank for a couple years now and I haven't seen an aiptasia since.

I will say that I think that if the aiptasia gets too large, the pep won't touch it.

Aiptasia-X worked very great for me !!!
Don't touch the polyp before you inject the liquid, or it will close up, and not eat the poison.

Also, I took a bet with peppermint shrimp, this worked in my case. It's random, someting peppermint eat aiptasia, sometime they'll never eat one...
