it is weird, but it works. Yes, please wait until the tank cycles.
I don't believe they bother other types of anemones, I have never heard of that happening.

Thank you guys so much for all the advice.... I love this board, even if it is over my head sometimes!

That is so wierd about the Peppermint Shrimp, but it sounds like the route to take since I wanted them in the tank anyway.

Since the rock is in there, should I leave things alone and just keep an eye out for any other "hitchhikers"?
Also, is this common from cured rock or should I have a concern on the LFS selling me rock that really wasn't cured? Not to diss the LFS ~ Just making sure I am up to speed on what is going in my tank! TIA!

Its pretty common for any rock coming from the wild. It may be cured, but I would monitor the water parameters for a couple of weeks to make sure they are optimal before adding any livestock.

quarryshark, thanks so much! I am on the right track then, just hurry up and wait, haha!

I just tested the water again and the ammonia is still on the climb, so it's not peaked yet, I thought perhaps it had.

Thanks Again All! Great Info! I'll sleep better, knowing what is going on in that water~

I took my rock out of the water, dripped a few drops of boiling water on the aiptasia and it died.

Haven't seen it since.

Boiling water doesn't always work, but it's the easiest thing to try. People usually use a syringe and inject boiling water close to the aiptasia's mouth, with the rock in the tank. If that doesn't work, then maybe try injecting some kalk (pickling lime, food grade). Then maybe try peppermint shrimps. Then maybe try aiptasia eating nudibranch (berghia).

Some fish eat aiptasia, but don't try that with a new tank.
