    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for 2 x peppermint shrimp or alternatively an aptasia eating file fish.

    Anyone know who has stock in the Cape Town area or alternatively anyone looking to get rid of theirs :1:

    Have you considered getting some bergia (aiptasia eating nubranches) to sort out the aiptasia! I know idol marine has some (might ship...)

    Yes their population will get less until a balance between aipiatasia and nudis is established.

    I like your idea of wanting a file fish though,

    we got one because of an aptasia problem and he completely took care of it and have had none since. the upside of him is the fact that he comes with a great personality and still eats pellets frozen and flakes should there not be any aptasia around to he becomes part of the fam in the tank and not just a pest controller

    Which filefish do you have @Damen? Which species are known to eat aiptaisia?
