being overrun by bubble tip anemones?

I started with 1 as a nice place for my mated clown pair... well now I am up to 13!! Any advice on how to remove them? Tried a turkey baster and moving a powerhead... taking out the rock also won't work as there are quite a few on our main suspension rock.... any other tips that have worked for you guys? Thanks

So... where are you then? You should have no problem finding local enthusiasts willing to come and get them if you find the right (local) club/forum!

Try touching the foot with an ice cube (rub it on the foot) dont leave it on long just a sec or two at a time it may take a few try's but it will make them let go

Put the ice in a plastic bag so you can hold on to it.
