Yeah currently I get dry rock & make it live myself. I plan on continuing doing it that way for the time being. I will eventually have some containers with the traditional live rock most LFS sell for the people who want that style but it will be isolated from the stuff I make myself so that will keep it pest free.

I agree. Going to try my best to not get Aptasia but if it does show its ugly head I would do my best to remove it & keep it from spreading. Nothing worse than doing nothing & just letting invade everywhere.

I think the Joes Juice & Aptasia X work well. I know Mr X says Kalk paste works well but I've not tried it. I never had much success with the lemon juice either. I've also been lucky & have had good success with peppermint shrimps. I've found that having a group of them works better than just one or two. I've had a couple Aptasia in a hard to reach area in my overflows and only ever seen two in my current DT in almost 2 years & the shrimps keep my tank free of them even though they are in the overflow.
