Tough anenome

This was a hitch-hiker from my LR.com order about 4 months ago. I have hit it with Joe's Juice several times... but it keeps coming back for more. Any idea's how to get it once and for all?

did you physically remove it after joe's juice?

try lemon juice and then picking it off the rock, try to leave none of it behind...

Right, evenings, why not keep it? How deadly are these things anyway? I've had a few since I added my live rock in April, and they don't seem to do much at all. Not taking over the tank, which I know I've heard they do. I do have joe's juice on hand, but have yet to use it, and I hate to kill anything which is not doing any harm!

evenings and dianeww, For what it's worth...
I had a few when I first set up my tank. They didn't seem to be doing any harm and I chose not to do anything with them. A year later I have several that are getting really large and little ones popping up all over the place. Now I really wish that I had taken measures to get rid of them in the beginning.
