Joe's Juice for Aiptasia

Has anyone used joe's juice for aiptasia? It says inject in its mouth....Where exactly is it? Right in the center? Is this a good product to use?

Yes, it's in the center. I would put some in the mouth, then when it shrivels up, put more on the glob that remains.

How do I get the ones that are facing down? Or do I have to do the obvious and dismantle my rock?

You have to leave them, unless you want to pull the rock. This is going to be part of your weekly maintenance routine. Most of the time, when people are getting out of the hobby, it's because they did everything wrong and failed.

If you can manage to kill every one of them, yes.

How about peppermint shrimp? I have a local coral farm called Pacific Aquaculture that sells them for $6.99. Do they do a good job? And how many would you suggest for my 96 gallon tank?

Sometimes they do, and sometimes they don't. They are hit or miss. I have seen 6 of them wipe an infested 150 gallon tank clean in just a few days. It won't hurt to add a few of them. Just make sure what you are buying are peppermint shrimp and not camelback shrimp- the latter are not reef safe.

I've now been told by a pet store that skunk shrimp will also help with apitasia. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Not true. They will never touch it.

Ok I found the only lfs that has peppermint shrimp is petco. They are 9.99 and they have 3. They said they are small. Will this help? And will I still be able to use Joes Juice on the anems that I can get to and leave the rest for the shrimp? Last question... How do I tell the difference between the peppermint and the camel?

Peppermint-




Camelback-


As I said before, they may help. Yes, you can nuke the ones you can get to and hope the shrimp get the rest.

Using a curved applicator, like the one that comes with AptasiaX you can get the upside down ones to ingest the juice.

Is there a certain way to do it or do I just cover the head with it? And I'm assuming shut pumps and ph's off??

They will actually inhale the stuff if you don't scare them into retracting.

Scare them? How do I not scare them?

LOL, you move very, very slowly. And if they retract, at least fill up their hole with juice.

I have about 30 pieces in various places. Some I can't even get to.

UPDATE:

Joe's Juice is the best crap on earth. No injection required. Just a little dab on the face of the aiptasia and it shrivels up immediately! I had very large ones, about the size of a half dollar, and they instantly were gone. I can't say enough good things about it. I recommend this product to anyone with aiptasia in their tank. I got a little bit on my mushrooms and it didn't even phase them one bit!!
