Aiptasia Problem, here's the cure.

Well after the problem with the leaking skimmer, another problem has come to light. Aiptasia, or glass anemone as it is otherwise known. My first intention was to purchase a peppermint shrimp, but at my latest visit to a LFS had non in stock but recommended Aiptasia X. I have heard of this before but was a little sceptical. It is expensive but thought what the heck!!

This product is fantastic, simply shake it up, draw some into the syringe provided, turn off any Power heads. The best bit insert the fine tip very closely to the centre of the anemone and introduce the fluid. The anemone then consumes the fluid and just appears to withdraw and die. After 24 hours all my aiptasia seems to have almost gone. I would highly recommend this product despite the high cost.

Thanks for the info. That's all they have at my LFS and I was a little septical.
I'll give it a try
