    I read on Reef Central few guys using a laser pointer to kill Aipsasia. This might be a solution to guys battling with this problem.

    Reef Central.com, under Reef Discussions. Better you read the thread properly as doing this is dangerous. They talk of using like 2w and those lasers very expensive.
