    Come on, we all have them or have had them, show us your biggest and best aiptasia you've ever had. :p

    Here's an old pic of mine from a couple of years ago, on the side of a squamosa clam.

    :lol: good thread Dean. I might not have the biggest, but I do have my Aiptasia ally. Must be about 10 in there, various sizes and only found in this part of the tank. I think my CB and file fish are to scared to go in there.

    Do you want to loan my Aiptasia eating file fish? He is a machine when it comes to nailing aiptasia.

    @fraser your aiptasia takes it on size man.....eish
    i cant stand aiptasia......
    although i had to restart my tank due to gill flukes...im happy i got to toss all the rock, gravel et cetc and sterilise the system so the 10 or 20 aiptasias i had will no longer be:biggrin:

    i used to be anil when placing coral in my tank...and one day a guy offered me a really incredible zoo, so i tossed it in the tank without thinking.....since then i was fighting evry 2 weeks to keep the population down......

    thanks viper for this horror thread:lol:
