I read a bit about that, it's really that serious?

I haven't noticed anymore yet so I guess that's lucky, I'll have nothing left on the rock if I remove it! Booo!

lol your welcome. My best method to get rid of it is either buying aiptasia x or getting some pickling lime from the grocery store then add some water to that to make it a paste. Kills them in a snap. But both a about equivelent IME

You shouldn't do that. You could boil it off though

If you even miss one little piece it will explode in growth. So you can try it but chances are it will come back with some new ones to
