Peppermint shrimp like to eat small aptaisia. for the larger ones you can treat with lemon juice. Just be careful, aptaisa can grow from the smallest chunk left over from its former body.

Again, that will kill ALL life in the rocks, not just the aiptasia. How bad is the infestation? Just a few, or lots? Are they in deep crevices?

If you have aiptasia that are in a crevice, one thing I've heard of is to completely cover them with superglue gel. It won't affect water chemistry, and you can completely seal it in and that will kill it. Juicing is only effective if you are able to kill the entire anemone. Even one cell left intact will regrow.

Well it's starting to get a lot and it would be no big deal to start over cause I want to redo my rock scape and use the rods and make it how I want it but can I do that with wet rocks

Best method that's worked for me is to use a lighter and burn it. A soldering iron works great as well.
