Super clean, pristine water - the right intensity lighting - correct amount of flow - patients - about 2 months. (This is all based on sps needs - would have to show pictures to see how bad each individual is if you wanted more info)

I had a problem with aiptasia so I got a bristletail filefish, and any aiptasia I now see is gone within a couple of days, personally I think it's better than chemical answers to the problem, but they will eat Duncan's corals, I tried the peppermint shrimps but he doesn't seem to be interested in aiptasia,

I just took coral out of tank and used my new fragging tools to scrape and cut out where it was

I just see feeder/sweeping tentacles on your trumpet. No aiptasia. If it is there you can inject lemon juice into it, other comercial products, concentrated kalk paste, or my favorite.....burn them off with a lighter or soldering iron.
