Many different ways to take care of this I chose lemon juice as it was inexpensive and offered a cheap chemical free solution , I would have taken more drastic measures had it not worked but just my 2 cents on how i solved it :)

I've used lemon juice with great results, although I never could get rid of all of them this way. Eventually I just got 2 peppermint shrimp and after about a week I never saw another aiptasia. I recommend peppermint shrimp since they are readily available and fairly inexpensive. Plus they don't usually cause damage to corals and are a nice addition to a reef tank.
