Newbie with aiptasia

Hey I recently bought a new tank from someone off of craigslist. It is a great deal but has tons of aiptasia (I COUNTED 13 ON 1 LR) And i was stroaming the internet and found red sea aiptasia x. I was wondering if anyone here has used this if so does it work? There is a link to what it is below.
Red Sea Aiptasia-X 2oz (60mL)

If you can i would take the rock out and scrub as many of them off as possible. Do a water change at the same time so you can use the old water to rinse the rock off before you put it back in the tank. I then would kill them as they grow back...eventually over time they will stop growing. I found lemon juice to work the best for me too. Remember to turn the current off while juicing them for about 10 mins to let the lemon juice really get them!

I had aiptasia duri g and right after my cycle, maybe about 10-12 of different sizes. After the cycle I bought three peppermint shrimp and in about three or four days no more aiptasia. I ended up with one on a frag a few weeks later and by the next day it had been eaten as well. No chemicals, no juice, no nothing but ps.
