aiptasia or not?

what are these little brown anenomes. It doesnt look like the two types of aiptasia ive seen before, but who knows. they seem to move around the tank and spread pretty well. my peppermints wont even look at them.

Look like majanos to me, just as bad as aiptasia, and should be treated as such.

Do to them as you would aiptasia. Make a kalk paste with calcium hydroxide (aka kalkwasser) and squirt it in them with a hypodermic without the needle. The concentrated kalk will coagulate in the water so lay a big dollop on top of the beast and it will shrivel and (hopefully) die. Biweekly treatments may be necessary to completely eradicate them.

If you happen to know somebody that has diabetes. See if they will give you a syringe with the needle and becareful with it and put some liquid calcium in the syringe and it directly inject it into the anenome mine all died with one treatment. Just be advised it is illegal for you to have the needle and have the needle disposed of properly

The way we do it is we look for the hole the aptasia will go in and then I hold the rock and my wife injects the aptasia in its hole with the calcium. Maybe we are lucky but we are batting 100%

injecting the anemone

Hmmm...I don't know how to kill the darn things. I was curious if you were injecting them with a needle or not? Things may be different in Ga, but here you can go to the farm co-op and buy syringes...no problem. We usually vaccinate our animals here instead of paying the vet mega$'s to come do it. You might try that as a source for a needle to inject the calcium into these things?
