The liverock in my 35 gal. reef tank is covered with aiptasia,so much that using Joes Juice would take weeks to control.Is there a way i can remove the rock and soak it in something that will not kill off the purple coraline algae?TIA
I dont know if theres a way to remove the rock and soak it to remove aiptasia without killing the caraline, sorry! However if you wanted to try something natural you could get a couple peppermint shrimp as they are awsome at aiptasia control. Thats just up to you though!
Couldn't say on the compatability between skunk cleaners and peppermints, but I put three of the little guys in my 20 way back when and they went to town on the aiptasia. Got rid of it in a week. And they were pretty cool to watch too. Have heard that the hot water injected into them works just never tried it. Was a little to involved for me. Oh well, just a thought!
By the way Hara is that your websight, looks really cool?
I think the tank is to small for both species of shrimp. Check out the link hara posted. Peppermints are not a guarantee. If you do get one that eats the aptasia, they only eat the small ones and the large ones are left to continue to spread. Good luck.
