Welcome to my world...LOL. Just do a search for aiptasia and you'll find out more than you ever want to know about them I'm currently fighting them in my new tank.

Long story short, you don't want them. I'm using Joe's Juice.

And never NEVER go in and manually try to gouge them out with a screwdriver! I tried that in my early stages. All it does is spread them all over your tank.

I have a Bottle of Joe's Juice I just need and injector.... Any does anyone know where I could get one at? I did a small water change and boy did they come out like it was a party.... and I notice there are more than before so I want to get rid of them before I start adding fish... I will also be geting a lighting system nothing big yet just to house my FOWLR tank 130watt T-5 lighting I know I would need more lighting if I want any other type of coral....

HAHAHAHA!!! I almost did that before a friend of mine gave me some of that Joe's Juice. Works wonders.

T-5 HO's all the way!!!!

As for your injector, it should have come with the Joe's Juice. You could always use one of those eye dropper or mini basters that can be found at CVS.

I found this way a lot more cheaper than Joe's juice, and even the big ones don't come back:
