Thanks for all the responses guys.

I think I am going to try the lemon juice injection method first. If that doesn't work I will go with the Kalk method. Only problem with any kind of injection right now is that they are so darn small. Might have to let them grow a bit.

I will definitely look into "Joes Juice".

i wouldn't go with the pepperment shrimps, depends on personality, but they may eat soft corals especially zoanthids. i did see some success with a reef safe chemical called "Aipista Stop" It sort of burned the aipistas and if you get them in the mouth b4 they closed it would kill them.

These sea slugs also eat Aiptasia. Most sea slugs are pretty selective in what they eat, so it is a possibility they don't eat some of your more beneficial corals and stuff. I would do a little research on that one, though

If there is only 2 of them use some epoxy stick to seal them in there holes. Do not try and physically remove them because any iece that gets loose can turn into a new one!

you can also make a paste out of Kalk and RO water and smear it in the aptasia- will kill it in a day or so. HTH

What is the big disadvantage to aips? I keep reading about how to get rid of them, but not why to get rid of them.

They sting friendly corals

Plus they reproduce really fast and grow even faster, and when they spread they sting whatever good corals they are growing up next to.

I have a big white aiptasia in my 10g mantis shrimp tank that I left in there to see how fast it would grow, when I feed the mantis frozen marine quisine I swish the food around in the tank so the juice flows around for the aiptasia to eat.

In about 1 1/2 weeks it has quadrupled in size. It's about 2" now. I will post pics when it gets huge. I am shooting for a half a foot if that is possible. LOL

This is what's wrong with aips



This is a pic that was attatched by one of our members (Bulldog12) to an ID post, this started as one or two aips.
