I just found my very first aiptasia anemone in my sump

So I just found my very first aiptasia anemone in my sump not really sure how it got there cause I havent put anything new down there I gave it a nice dose a kalk I guess my question is should I be concerned about a outbreak of aiptasia I looked everywhere in the tank and didnt see anymore

If you see 1 there's 10 more you don't see lol. Aptasia-x works great on the ones you can see. Peperment shrimp will eat them also. That's the battle plan I went with and it worked great for me.

I find I have a lot in my sump but in my dt I have a couple of peppermints and they take care of any in there. I have never had any luck with aptasis x it seems like it just spreads them for me for some reason they break apart. I am careful not to poke them with the needle.
