Yeah, +1 for Aiptasia X. It only raise calcium and PH in the water I think.

Copperbanded butterfly works great and also a very amusing and friendly fish. Wiped out all aiptasia in my 220g tank in about a day.

I have to disagree. It's hit or miss whether it will ever eat aptasia, and it's also highly unlikely it will take to prepared foods. Most of these fish starve to death in closed systems. Success stories are few and far between.

That is a good point if you don't have an established or larger system. I've had my reef tank for about three years and have had a butterfly fish for about two years with no problems. He readily adapted to frozen mysis shrimp.

Safest way would be to pull the rock out and chisel off the part of rock its attached to. Take it outside and grind it into the sidewalk with your shoe.

Actually, whether you have a large established system or not, it's still hit or miss. More of these fish die in captivity than live.

Peppermint shrimp got rid of mine in one day. They still hang out and sweep up at night.
