    Will he walk around on the rock.
    Has a white dot centre
    If it is I will take it out.
    But it's got a base that it walks around.
    It settled now.
    Just didn't feel or think it looked like aiptasia. I've had be4.

    You can't remove it as it will spread, inject with vinegar

    just take the rock out in another bucket under old tank water, and treat the aiptasia to its early demise. Do not treat it in the tank

    It comes off the rock.
    It was like a gel ball when I noticed under a rock.
    I put it ontop of the rock.
