Shame bout the peppermint shrimps as mine cleared my tank in a week. Boiling lemon juice or aiptasia x could be options if you can get to it

Best thing that's worked for me over the years is to take the rock out of the tank (if possible) and use a lighter, torch, soldering iron...whatever you have. Burn it, and then rinse it off before you add it back to the tank.

Also for around the price of that majano wand you can build yourself a sweet laser that will burn the little beasties through the glass and water of your tank, couple of interesting YouTube videos of this. And as a bonus you have a sweet laser to harrass local air traffic with

Nothing, and I mean nothing, rids a tank faster of aiptasia then a scat. Down side is, they get big. I used to belong to a reef club. We passed around a scat when someone would have a problem with aiptasia. They are such a PIA. Goes into the same category as bubble algae (Valonia) as far I'm concerned.
