    Hi all!

    Has anybody been able to get hold of those puppies, for the fight against Aiptasia?

    Thanx!

    I too would LOVE to have one of these..... I have a VERY successful aptaisia farm.... No use me trying to eradicate mine by hand - I just have FAR FAR too many!

    never a good idea to use livestock to fight pests, reason being when they disappear the feed on other stuff. but u can send me your aptasia if u in jhb, or i can collect :)

    then both me and Jacques might as well send you our tanks! They look like a breeding ground for the aiptasia! EVERYWHERE. Tried everything - peroxide/acid [as bought from the LFS in CT]/blah blah blah --- in small doses everything works [like maximum 2ml/day in the tank], but it still doesn't decrease the number of the pests!

    they are good mechanical filters, but can be a nuisance...
