Uh oh great. Good news is I guess there just on a couple pieces of decorative rock now. Weird thing is they moved up closer to the light themselves, they used to be lower to the bottom

Aiptasia-x works to kill them too

Well I'm just thinking if they have to go ill pull the rocks out of the tank. It's just 2 very small pieces. But then what just let it dry and put the rocks back in?


Btw I'm not trying to hijack your tread

As mentioned, do NOT try to manually remove them. They are nicknamed glass anemones for a reason... when you break the stem from removal, it busts up into many little shards, each of which will land somewhere & grow into a whole new anemone.
Peppermint shrimp are very hit or miss, and even the ones that will eat aipstasia will usually only go after smaller ones.... once the anemones get to a certain size, even the shrimp won't go near them.
Yes, you can remove the rock & let it dry for for a few weeks, but then you've lost everything else on there as well..... benefical bacteria & possible good critters.
One of my preferred methods is a micro-torch to fry them, but with that many, I think I'd refrain from as little physical disturbance as possible and move on to chemical warfare.

The only time you need to worry about palytoxins is if the rock actually has palythoa or zoanthid corals......
Guess ill have to try aipstasia X since they are starting to grow larger and am afraid the peppermint shrimp might not go near it. There's Soo many now. And I'd hate to let it dry since I see so many little critters already on it at night so much beneficial bacteria. How many is recommended to remove a day? Would you say? With Aipstasia X? Thanks again.

Will do I'd rather have the peppermint shrimp do it but my tank is only 3 weeks cycled. I hope this stuff doesn't change the Ph level. It says to only eliminate 10 per day. Hope everything works out fine. Ill keep you posted.
