    Posted: May 24 2015 at 7:49pm

I have read a lot of different ways to get rid of aiptasia. I have one large aiptasia visible in my tank that is probably close to an inch large and just barely showed up when I moved the tank. I am sure that with one that large I will be seeing others if I don't take action. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this one and a way that I won't need to worry about them in the future? Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Any local fish store should have Aiptasia X as for the Christmas wrasse Not sure I always look on websites for compatibility and cross check on others Just as a warning you will never see the peppermints once adding them

Dion's way is to use a needle and syringe and inject the stalk with vinegar. I've tried it and it works great. it dissolves it with in seconds and I haven't had a problem with it popping up elsewhere.
