    Hi Guys

    I am still running my fowlr system, but my wife and i came to compromise that i can use my sons room(he moved to another room) as suppose to having the tank in the lounge(yes yes i flooded the lounge once again).I am also gonna get another tank dim 2000 x 600 x 800 and will be selling my old tank .I am planning on haveing a moderate bio load(10 - 15) fish and the tank will be sps dominated.Is it visable to dry aiptasia infested lr and reseed it in my current tank a week before i do the tranfer to the new tank.

    I've heard that Aiptasia comes back...some have had their LR out in the sun for months only to have Aiptasia come back after re-introducing it into the Tank....I would not touch those rocks with a 10Ft pole...:blush:..sorry I'm having an Aptasia Infestation at the moment...:biggrin:

    Wouldn't advise using that rock. have to agree with Belinda on this. i think if you maybe boil the rock it should kill it. but if you are pretty set on using the same rock as before, i think a peppermint shrimp or 3 should help get rid of the aptasia (if im not mistaken). otherwize you can dose aptasia x.
