    aptasia, or glass anenome....but i havent bothered to kill mine,i was hoping my copper band would do that, but no luck there! :(

    there are a number of methods, most involve a lethal injection of something, either warm lemon juice, super concerntrated kalkwasser, or you can get a commercially available product like Joes juice which apparently works well.

    i'll tag along from here and see what other people have used as i def need to clear my tank before i get any more.

    Dreaded Aiptasia - Glass anenome.

    Number of ways of erradicating.

    Best product I have found is Joe's Juice.

    Another way is an injection with a super concentrated solution of Kalkwasser, right in the middle of the creature and goodnight and goodbye ;)

    It grows aggressively and stings corals. If you try manually move it, it will multiple insanely. It can also handle almost any water parameters, very strong creatures, also not the prettiest :whistling:

    nd often does spread very fast, is difficult to controll and will sting other corrals it can get into contact with. You simply do NOT want it in your tank.
