    In spaces but not all,and then it is back in a week or so.Plus it takes a long time to peel off as it is braking of in small pieces. Not getting it to peel of in large amounts with one go.

    I have blue cloves overtaking the whole show. Sprayed some aiptasia x on a section to see what effect it has and they died off completely in that area. Been 2 weeks and the section of rock has seen no grow back yet.

    This can work. You don't need to take out the rock when using aiptasia x? I want to avoid taking out the LR.
