    You want somebody to say NO.

    ok, NO

    NO ways that they will NOT miss the opportunity of an easy meal. Overfeeding normally helps a lot in the population growth of aiptasia. So, NO problem, you want more, just feed anything more. :p

    Haha, I never had any luck killing them with kalk. In fact, I think the ones I had even liked it. The only thing I ever used that actually did them in was NaOH... but that's a desperate man's last resort. ;)
