I have a lot of aptasia in my tank, 37 gal. I bought 4 peppermint shrimp and they are hiding. I'm hoping they will get used to their new home but I'm ready to start stocking some corals in the tank and want to get rid of these things,at least the big ones. When you say "inject them with..." do you mean with a hypodermic needle or dose them with something in a pipette?

With a needle, but need to be done fast or the aiptasia will hide into the rock, also try using a big needle the ones that come with 5 or 10 ml syringe.

You can try removing the rock and then burning them off with a screwdriver that has been heated from a flame but that can be a pain in the you know what. Keep in mind the Copperband Butterfly beside being a difficult fish to keep has to be able to get to the Aptasia.
