Anyone know what this is? And how to rid them away? Little buggers are starting take over.

Many thanks.

It looks like aiptasia to me. I used Aiptasia-X to kill the large ones in my tank and got a couple peppermint shrimp to take care of the small ones (existing and future).

Aiptasia-X will work...but with such a bad outbreak I'd just remove the infested rocks and boil them.

Thanks! Yeah for some reason i dont feel they are Aiptasia ( I might be wrong). Aiptasia from i have seen are a little more clear with longer thinner tennacle things. I had a couple Aiptasias about a month or so go. Used Aiptasia x and they immediately disappeared.

Used Aiptasia x to these fellas last night and nothing happened to them. Came right back.

At first i thought they were brown polyps - thats until they started taking over.


Thoughts?
