SassyAngel111 CB and a peppermint shrimp
I have never had a CB, but I have read they will take out most other shrimp.....
To get rid of the aiptasia, use boiling water in a turkey baster or Joe's juice, as stated above, I think I have read other's using lemon juic...the kind that comes in the little lemon looking container.....ummmm, lemmon!

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

+1 to the Peppermint shrimp idea. I had a few aptaisia start when I got my tank going, once the cycle was done, I threw in 2 Peppermint shrimp and no more aptaisia.

Some believe that a gold banded butterfly fish is a natural controller of Aiptasia. (I think that's the right butterfly fish, if you google aiptasia you'll be able to get some great facts)
Not a good idea. Just thought I'd mention. Fish is kinda hard to keep and sensitive. Also will not fit in your 29 gallon.

I've used Joes Juice and it rocks. I would avoid lemon juice if at all possible because it may damage other corals, livestock in the tank.

After the other pictures, I'm fairly certain that's a brain.

About the CB Shrimp, I would add with caution.

tweaver001 no I only have about three that came on the rock that is hosting the christmas tree worms. The one that is infront of the cabbage leather is just a rock with polyps.

I guess it means a new turkey baster and boiling water to get rid of these pest.

Thanks for the info.
