Those aren't aiptasia. Get a clearer focused pic posted for a possitive ID. They look like either polyped stick hydroids or mini dusters.

Cheers
Steve

those look like little feather dusters to me, but they may be a hydroid species. Definetely NOT aiptasia.

Now back to bj5z25, since it was originally his post. If you go with peppermint shrimp, you want to make sure they are Lysmata Wurdemanni.

Another effective method is Berghia nudibranchs, they feed ONLY on aiptasia but die when all the aiptasia is gone.

Removing Aiptaisia

I have heard that a copperband butterfly or peppermint shrimp will do the trick, but I had an aiptaisia in my tank. What I used for it was Joe's Juice. I had been told by numerous people that it works like magic. When I used it, I saw the aiptaisia pull itself into it's hole in the rock and I had not seen it since. That was about a month ago. I recommend it based on my experience.
