Joes Juice!!

Hey guys. I have recently bought Joes Juice to kill off my aiptasia's. I applied the mixture onto the mouth and was amazed to see it disappear. Little did I know. The things were right back in there. The same aiptasias back in action. Am I doing something wrong or is Joes Juice supposed to be a temporary solution? Hmm I dunno. Help me out fellas!!

What you probably saw was your aptasia retracting into a hole in your rock. You'd be surprised how small those buggers can make themselves. I used a peppermint shrimp on mine so I can't really help you with the use of Joe's.

I've used Joe's Juice and it does work.
I accidentally had some leak out onto the rock where the aptasia was located.
I left it lay for about a 15 minutes and then I tried to suck most of it back up into my syringe.
I found that this really was very effective.
Granted it isn't exactly what the directions say to do...but it worked.

Hope this helps.
Just keep trying
