It's Aiptasia. I had luck with Aiptasia-X. My cube has been Aiptasia free since the outbreak about 10 months ago.

Darn!! Just when I think everything is going well, BOOM! Aiptasia. I'll try to go tomorrow to my LFS to see if they have it. If not it'll have to be friday... dang. I wish it showed itself yesterday, I would have ordered it with my amazon order! It'll already shipped too, so I can't add it on.

Well there's always the possiblity of diatoms, hair algae, and/or cyano, pests that can kill something, fish or corals dying or disappearing or getting sick, etc. Don't want to scare you, but just prepare yourself so you don't freak out when it does happens.

I've had FW aquariums for years now so I am at least prepared for fish illnesses and fish stuff... And I've battled my fair share of algae as well. I understand there's always going to be challenges, but hopefully they won't be too bad! Aiptasia is something completely new to me.

Hopefully I have a good plan to prevent those things from occurring as well... circulation pump on its way, water changes, good clean up crew...

Forgot to mention a while ago I saw three tiny little red worms the thickness of thread. Could these be young bristle/fire worms? If so, are they beneficial for my tank? They are way too tiny to remove. It's so interesting to see how much life comes off of these live rocks!

Probably just small sand dwelling worms. Shouldn't be anything to worry about.
