I've never heard of using super glue you can boil lemon juice and shoot it with a syringe. Or try joes juice or aiptasia x.

Yea, I've read that you could superglue them into their hole lol

I think I'll just put the whole rock in boiling water and see if that kills it. I'll just have to make sure the starfish is hiding somewhere else I know the other life on it will be killed, but it's not even a true rock, it's like a weird fossily red thing

No, superglue doesn't seem to hurt aptasia in my experience. I always went with thick, hot kalkwasser paste dropped right into their mouth. Lemon juice injected into them can also KO the suckers.

Before I try anything, would turning the rock upside down so the anemone is pressed in the dark on the sand do anything? Or would it just make it worse? :O

If you can do that, take the rock out and burn it off with a lighter. Torch that sucker and call it day.

Great idea. Turning the rock over could make it move and reproduce. They can spread as they move by leaving tiny parts of their base along the way. If you burn it I would rinse the part of the rock it was on with a cup or two of tank water (over a sink of course).

That's a good idea, I'll burn that thing lol, if I can find it out of water. But I guess I'll burn the general area.

I think you'll be ok. Do it over the sink just in case.
