    Instant, Aptasia melts away. Follow the instructions carefully. Do two, then do the rest. Don't try and do all at once..

    Vinegar can also be used. Normal white vinegar. Use only 1ml per 100 litres though.

    Much cheaper as well.

    I treated with white vinegar when I had a problem. It worked very well. Inject the vinegar into the aptasia using a needle and syringe.

    I used a green high powered laser pointer and fried them. Make sure to catch any pieces that break free, they can regrow if you leave the pieces in the tank. There's a lot of YouTube videos showing you how to inject or fry aiptasia.

    Borrowed it, I would buy AiptaisaX or Joe's Juice long before I spend money on buying the laser.

    Lemon juice, kalk mix or vinegar. Use an insulin needle and inject them directly in the mouth. Didn't work for me though, every time I got close, they would retract.
