If you're doing lemon juice, just put the syringe near where you need to spray and allow it to come back out because like previously stated, it will retract. Once it comes back out, give it a good spray. I read that method on another thread.

I have a 55 gallon tank with 4 peppermint shrimp. They usually stay hidden so you won't really know they are there. But they will clear the tank of aptasias in a few hours. Awesome critters.

Do they eat anything else? Or will they die after the aptasias are done?
