I have got 3 of these in my tank. Did not know what they are until I found this photo. Do you guys get rid of them? They are not as prolific as Aiptasia but apparently are just as bad.

Yeah, they are not really welcome as they do tend to spread quite rapidly and can sting other corals, some of them are very pretty though, rather sad that we have to kill them.

I would also get rid of them asap as they will spread faster than aptaisia.

Oh ok, thanks. Do you use it the normal way with a syringe?

One of the mods on an English reefer forum found a novel way of removing Majanos, all he did was to place a small piece of slate overthe majano, completely covering it, the majano then moves round on top of the slate, which you then remove.
Simple and 100% effective with no chance of any nasty spawning

Sorry Viper, I use syringe and very thin needle. just the tiniest of Terminator and it is dead and gone within hours, works extremely well with Aiptasie as well.
