I`ve noticed aptasia super close to my leather

It's notice aptasia super close to my leather. How can I get rid of it? I'm afraid of using hot water and lemon juice this close to the leather.

I have ONE aiptasia in my tank and it's on the top of an astrea snail. I scrub it every week, and it grows back. I bought a peppermint shrimp las week. I'm starting to get tired of it. I think I'll blast it with orange juice tonight.

It's on a drag I just got for free. If I have to sacrifice a bit of the leather I guess I can. Might take a lighter to it.
