If you want to get rid of aiptasia without chemicals you can always use one of these Amazon.com: Majano Wand - Mojano & Aiptasia Zapper: Kitchen & Dining

That is the niftiest device ever! LOL

Just zap them away! Don't know how much aiptasia you'd need for that to pay off though. hehe

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
