I have also used boiling water in the same method, with great success.

Yep, what rr said . I regularly use the vinegar through a syringe in my 10g. I have injected several large aiptasia amongst corals with no ill effects..save for some Xenia momentarily closing up. I use this simply because I don't have/use kalkwasser.

I've had mixed effects with boiling water. When they didn't die, they seemed to go on a reproducing frenzy. I had at one point easily 50-75 in my nano. I also had an explosion in my 30g. This could very well be coincidence but i just wanted to throw it out there.

First, let me thank all of you who have helped me with my aiptasia problem. I have injected most of them with distilled vinegar. I believe two got away before I could stick them. Do I need to remove the dead ones from the tank(if I can get them)? THanks again 8)

Yes, they will break down and increase your bioload.

I think the vinegar would be easier since most people have that on hand.
