You need to jab him right in his mouth to get him. It seems creepy but thats the only way for sure to get em. Coating him or the area won't do the trick. Just close your eyes and stab a way. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Oh it didn't bother me but I was trying to follow the written directions. It said to release some as I approached it and it would close around it. Then I could coat the entire mouth area. But, as soon I stuck it in he retracted. I am pretty sure I got a good glob in there and when he contracted it had to coat everything. But, since I couldn't get any more in his mouth and I knew I couldn't put what was left back in the bottle I figured I might as well cover him. If he comes up for air he is going to have a surprise waiting for him. LOL

I used aptasia x and got rid of them but they came back so a guy told me about peppermint shrimp and I bought some and before I knew aptasia was gone and haven't seen them since. Only time I see the shrimp now is when the lights go off. This is the best solution for aptasia.

Haven't seen it come back yet but I am keeping an eye out for it. May look into the shrimp if I see it again. I have a Fire Shrimp now. Do they get along with the Peppermint?

Good news is, I have not seen it again nor have I seen any others so maybe I got him good enough. (Oh, I shouldn't have said that out loud huh?)

I can only speak from my experience. I have a fire shrimp, 2 cleaner shrimp, and a peppermint shrimp. My tank is rather larger so they have there own space. I rarely see the fire shrimp, and the peppermint on see it at night.
