That's up to you, but I certainly wouldn't keep Aiptasia in the tank, it spreads quickly and is a real nuisance to get rid of.

AipasiaX did the trick on the one little one I had. There are a couple of other methods as well. Get with Carey and she can give you a much better explination of how to rid the tank of them.

I took out some rocks that had BAD BAD aiptasias on it and poured boiling water over it and let it sit in fresh water for about 3 days, changing it daily. It killed the live rock but it also got rid of dozens of those things.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Pulling them off isn't enough as far as I've read. It'll leave tiny bits of them there to grow back.
