There are also berghia nudibranchs and others have had success with kalk paste, but you would need to watch for alk spikes.


Iíve had thoughts of adding a shrimp. I didnít know Peppermint shrimp eat Aiptasia.

back also

aptasia choices:

1. squirt them with aptasia killer once a week...wont take long and eventually you will have them under major control but neverrrrrrrrrr willl you completely get rid of them using this method
2. get a filefish that eats them...he may kill them all off...depending on if you get the right fish and the right specimen of that fish...
3. get a copperbanded butterfly...worked best for me and ate every single one of them in a 300 gallon system I could not believe it! They never came back..shocked heck out of me.

I would not get to excited about them...they are very easy to control 2 minutes a week!

Supposedly they do, but I hear its pretty hit or miss. Some will eat aptasia, a lot completely ignore it. Kind of a case by case thing

Thank you for the awesome suggestions everyone! Now though Iím limited to fish, I have a 5 gallon tank. Would this Aiptasia killing spray harm anything else ?

Looks great, what’re you using in terms of chemical filtration (if any)?
