    When I started my tank, I remember the joys of discovering the first "coral growth" in the tank while it was circulating. Through MASA I quickly realised that I had Aiptasia and nuked them with Joe's Juice.

    Some months have now passed and suddenly this week I noticed, growing from my substrate, what looks like Aiptasia. However, I remember Aiptasia as having a brownish colour. The 2 newbies are blue in colour. I tried nuking them with Joe's Juice, but they're still there, which leads to the questions:
    1. Could these be something other than Aiptasia?
    2. Does Joe's Juice kill only Aiptasia or will it kill other corals?

    I tried taking pictures, but they are so tiny that it does not come out clearly in any of the pics.
