aptasia

I have a old reef aquarium that was neglected for a while. most of the inverts are dead. I have a bad aptasia problem. Is there something I inverts are dead. I have a bad aptasia problem. Is there something I can use to just Target. Inverts instead of dealing with each aptasia?

Not that I know of. Why not just place said rock into a bowl of boiling water? Or the mixture of that thingo..... Kalkasser? I know nothing about it and I'm sure thats not how you spell it.

I believe they are obligate aptasia feeders though. All aptasia gone = ticking time bomb of future nudi death. Just not worth the risk IMO. They're are better options. Check out Mike's link. It's great info.

A combination method using Joe's Juice for any left after removing and boiling the rock it's on.

I know you said there no inverts left, but what is left (alive)?
