All excited for nothing

I was all excited the other day when I began to see lots of new life on my LR. At first I found a few tiny snails and then found 2 sea stars.

Yesterday, I found 5 feather-duster like creatures. Today its 8 or 9. I told the guy at the lfs and he told me that they were "Aiptasia" and that I should get rid of them before they multiply like crazy. Huh?!?

I did a web search and found lots of info about these pesky little critters and how to kill them off. Seems that there are many methods and that none of them are real easy or effective. I was hopeful that all I needed to do was pluck them off with a tweezer but that appears to be the WORST thing to do.

What have you guys successfully done to remove Aiptasia?
