When it starts spreading and taking over your tank yes. Hard to get rid once it's gained a foot hold in your tank

You should maybe start a separate thread detailing your setup and couple of pics would be nice too. As for the aiptasia you can blast them with hot water using a turkey blaster or inject small amounts of vinegar (using a fine needle) in their mouths (but can only do 1 or 2 a day as this can effect your ph). You also get Joe's Juice or AiptasiaX which also kills them. You also get peppermint shrimp and a File fish that eats them but that is usually a hit and miss. Raccoon butterfly fish also eat them but are usually a problem with corals. I bought a Silver Scat and he got rid of them in my display, I still have in my sump which I now and then put in my display as a snack for him.

We are all here to help, don't be afraid to ask. Alot of MASA members that can help with a variety of things. Also we all had to deal with aiptasia one time or another, just be patient when dealing with aiptasia.
