    hi i know that much has been said on ways to get rid of apastia but i would like to share my experience .
    the best and cheapest way that i found after a long research oln the web and the books is with vinegar.

    its very easy all you need is an insulin syringe with needle and vinegar.

    i identify exactly where the apastia is and then i inject into the root 0.5ml of vinegar.
    that's all,
    i never had that apastia coming back.
    i will try to post photos since i never photoed the process but it works magic.
    i hope you will find it helpful.

    Yip it does work, problem is that most of the time they close up and retreat into the rock. Also if you damage them they will spread. Just as cheap is a Kalk and RO mix and squirt into "mouth" of aptasias.

    Guys with smaller tanks beware that if you go ape with a killing frenzy you might affect your PH etc so keep this in mind.
