Yes, I know. I read online that you can try it w/ a medicine dropper. I thought I'd at least try that first. I really don't wanna pour boiling water on the whole rock, as I'm sure it may cause some die-off, etc later. I'll try Aiptasia-X first. Thks!!

Did the Aiptasia-X, I think it worked! I sucked it off w/ a turkey baster after... poured it into a cup to see if there were any parts/evidence... Nothing. I looked & looked for it to pop back up on the live rock again, nothing. So we'll see tomorrow... AND in a few weeks if any planula escaped!

You should just leave the stuff over the area. It'll smother it if it didn't get into the mouth.

My scarlet shrimp kept picking at it & strewing it about!! I wasn't sure if it'd affect him, it was stressing me out keeping him away from it.

It'll be fine. Says right on the box that it is safe.

Yeah, but I'm sure it's caustic to a degree & I was afraid he'd burn his claws or something & not realize it at the moment. I'm sure it's fine once it mixes into the water column but in that globulated form, I'm imagine pretty concentrated. Well, the Aiptasia is definitely gone. We'll just have to see if it spread in a few weeks.

Don't worry about eating it. My snails and crabs devoured the stuff without issue.

You should never ever boil live rock. Some rock can give off palyotoxin and kill you and anyone else in the house.

He just said Pour boiling water OVER the rock, not *to boil it*... just to clarify
