I think if you can get real peppermint shrimp that is the best way.

I've had success with a few peppermint shrimp. Some will eat them, some won't. Mine ate even the big aiptasia!

Spray lemon juice inside of it's mouth. Found out lime juice will work too.

i was recommended pickling lime. $6 and im set for life. get one of those plastic pipettes and mix it up in some water. then like the lemon or lime juice, when its out put a drop at its center. sweety pie is a stone cold aiptasia killer with the stuff.
