There are nudibranchs, fish and peppermint shrimp that love to eat aiptasia.

You'll make that tank awesome.

He has some Aiptasia X in one of his medicine boxes. Have you heard of that? Right now the live rock is in a Rubbermaid container with an air stone. I'm breaking down my tank now. I pick up the new tank in an hour or so. going to wait on putting everything together so I could redo the stand. In meantime the fish will be in a 29 gallon tank and the anemones and corals will be in other containers. It looks like it will be a lot of work (especially bc I'm a little OCD when it comes to cleaning my tank) so we will see how it all turns out.

Aiptasia x worked great for me. Good luck! Cleaning the tank when you get it is always the fun part! Think of how accomplished you'll feel when it's done and you get to sit back, relax, and enjoy your tank.
