Your best bet will probably be to "nuke em" with kalk.

Be sure to remove it from your tank since it's on a piece of rubble rock. If it's only that one piece you could just flame it with a butane lighter. That's what I do!

Yes torching the rock does kill the aiptasia. Just be sure to torch the correct spot. let it cool down put it back in the tank and spot check in a few days to see if you missed any.
Repeat if needed.

wouldn't you want to rinse it before you put it back in?
