Peppermint shrimp love to eat Aptasia. Great natural way to get rid of and stay rid of Aptasia. I bought 2 for my 180, and haven't seen any Aptasia, for over a year, and counting.

Their zooanthids. Don't kill them as they are a low light coral.
Edit; Nvm I see the aptasia below the coral lol

Peppermint shrimp will eat small ones. Other than that, injecting Aiptasia X, lemon juice, kalkwasser, or boiling water into its mouth.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
Take the frag plug out of the tank and scrape the anemone off with a razor blade. Rinse the plus in tank water and put it back.
