Hydrogen Peroxide & Aptasia

Has anyone tried it, according to reefcentral it can be used, but could harm other stuff it interacts with in the water column. Anyone use it? I have a very small peice that i would like to get rid of before it spreads. here is a link to the methods.

Thanks,

Jeff

Wouldn't suggest it. Peroxide will greatly increase O2 within the water and has the potential to be quite lethal to a great many things. You are better off with more conventional means... ie Joe's juice, pepps, kalk paste, lemon juice and/or hot water.

Cheers
Steve

Straight lemon juice, the more important part though is you need to actually inject (hypodermic needle) the pest in the rectractor muscle for it to work well, same goes for boiling water. It/they cannot be administered the same way as Joe's juice or kalk paste.

Cheers
Steve

I've had good luck with joe's juice. Works quick and my starfish and hermit crabs are quick to clean up any mess that is left over. It is kind of hard to get the smaller ones, but I've heard that peppermint shrimp will take care of those.
