I will say they can move all over your tank and reproduce fast. I would say get them killed asap or you will have them everywhere. I have to run through and inject several of them about 1 a month because I let them get out of hand. dont let that happen to you.

Well...I got the Kalk. But in the state of California, you can't purchase a syringe without a RX saying you're a diabetic & you need insulin injections. Any other ideas on how I can get rid of them?

I can't just grab them w/ some gloves or tweezers & rip them out of the tank?

Sure you can. But you sure don't want too.
You will leave parts of the pedal disk that will grow into fully formed anemones for every microscopic piece left behind. For every one you rip out you will get 6 or 8 more.
Try a large eye dropper. Maybe one of those baby things you use to give babies medicine. I have one that looks like a king size eye dropper. You could put a lenth of small diameter tubing on the end. It should work fine. You just need to put a dollop of kalk on the oral disk. When you mix calcium hydroxide (aka kalkwasser, aka pickling lime) and fresh water (doesn't need to be hot) it will make a milk colored solution. Use 1 or 2 tsp in an ounce or less of water. When you squirt this concentrate into saltwater it "gels" up and will stay where you put it, for the most part. High current will blow it around so be careful.

Just a quick blurb, you can get some pickling lime at your local grocer a lot cheaper than actual kalkwasser at the LFS, they are the same.

Well one of them, the other one had moved to a really hard location so we are still trying, he doesn't look brown anymore kind of a green limpy color. Still going at it, found a couple more aipastia's too since our peppermint is now missing we are gonna have to dose those too. That should be fun. :|
