majano nems!!

Iv got a few of these little pest and can see them growing in new places... what is a good method you all have used?

Aptasia-x wouldn't do the trick would it? I usually don't cut corners I just work a tuff shift at work and is hard to get to my LFS untill my fays off (mon and tues).

How do I prepare a lemon juice method?

I use pure lemon juice from a squeeze bottle and a syringe from cvs. Just inject it in the center and plunge it in for a but. Maybe a ML?

Keep pumps off and be a safe distance from other corals. The lemon juice will drift once you plunge. I killed a small Xenia that way by mistake. But I've done it next to larger ones no prob. I think once you plunge and see the lemon cloud just wave something in the water to dissipate if it's close to a coral

Okay thanks.... so the lemon juice in the right concentrations will kill others? Why so deadly?

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
Lemon juice has a pH of around 2.0

- any of the manual methods used to kill aptasia should work on majanos.

The aptasia-x worked just as good as it did on the majanos as it did aptasia!! Great product for pesky nems!!!
