    Majano anemone. Do I win a prize?

    Some folks say it's a pest. I've never had a problem with them. Google to inform yourself of the pros and cons.

    When I had one, I just removed the rock then quickly scrapped it off and threw it on the grass lol.. Boiling water will work and probably aiptasia x.. but if you try to squirt boiling water on it, I suggest removing the rock from the tank then squirting

    Aptasia X does not work on these. So don't bother. They just come back. Either get some reef putty and completely cover it, or take the rock out the tank and scrape it away. Make sure you scrape all of it away, or it could come back.

    Why are pest anemones always so easy to keep, and the nice ones always so hard?
