    Yip. I got some new LR and it has about 3 billion of them (ok not that many but there are a few and i want them gone. Its for the new tank and to start off with fighting Aiptasia is never a good thing. so i want to get the shrimp in there asap

    Could someone post a pic of an Aiptasia please. I'm in the process of running in my tank and almost ready to add some LR soon. So i need to know what sort of nemesis i could be dealing with.

    Do yourself favor, get a copperband from petstop or idol marine.they tend to have good feedind stock.
    Peppermints don't work unless you get really lucky.

    exotic marine in ottery has a copperband that can eat your aptasia,they also stock coral care terminator which also kills aptasia.
