Is what I think it is, and is there a easy way to get rid of it...
Sorry guys having problem uploading pics.
Is this what I think it is??
Aptasia? I Reckon it is....or a similar life form....better zap it quick
and the easiest way to Zap it will be??
Eish!! Welcome to aiptasia control. Lots of threads on MASA about it. I use Aiptasia X
Thanks, but it is Aiptasia right? , just want to make sure.... and I can get Aiptasia X at any life stock right
I am sure we have no idea what that means
Copperband does mine, otherwise, I had loads of success with lemon juice injected directly into the foot or mouth.
That is Aiptasia. Check your tank carefully for others and get rid of them sooner rahter than later.
Aiptasia-X worked well for me. If you only have one or two, then go the chemical route. If it were a heavy infestation then you could consider using copperband, peppermint shrimp etc.
oh Lemon Juice, interresting, I will give it a try, but can I do it in the tank or should I move the rock to a seperate tank and do it there?
Well I will go check, but from what I could see it looks like that some of the GSP closed up, which caught my eye, so hopefully there arent any others..
But if you talk about Chemical route, what chemicals?
okay cool, Im gonna go the cheap Lemon juice route and try that and see how things go, thanks though.
But another question, Perppermint and cleaner shrimps, do they live peacefully together?
Get aptasia-x it works the best, rather than go the cheaper route and risk the aptasia spreading.
So they spread that fast??
I tried lemon juice to save a buck.....I didnt work and because the lemon juice didn't kill them they spread quickly....It took about 2 months of Aptasia-x treatments to get rid of the Aptasia because I tried to go cheap the 1st time round....
OKay, Aiptasia X it will be then..and sorry guys I read me previous question and, sorry Martin it doesnt make sense, what I meant was Aiptasia X is easily accessible?
It should be I recall seeing the stuff on the shelves at pretty much all the sponsors + a few non sponsers.
I had mild success with KALK. Lemon juice made them angry and they spread extremly fast.
Aiptasia-X was the only thing that worked for me. But other guyd have had success with lemon juice and KALK
