Aiptasia. This beautiful creature is actually a pest. They grow and reproduce rapidly, eating anything it can grasp. They also release a toxin that may poison smaller fish and other creatures that brush against them. #aiptasia #coralreef #coral #reef #reeftank #ocean #oceanlife #polyps #zoas #zoanthids #anemone #sea #sealife #macro #macroshot #macrophotography

psn_scoot : Why is aiptasia bad? I have it in my tank and never knew it was bad till now.
raerae_305 : It's more like an infestation! It bothers your corals and puts stress on them! @psn
psn_scoot : Dam, I never knew that thanks! What area you guys service in and do you have a minimum tank size you start at?
raerae_305 : No problem! I service all of Dade and Broward! Call or text me for details at 786-290-6681 @psn_scoot
raerae_305 : I didn't just discovered this product! I don't know if you remember but I used this when you originally setup your 75gal. I just prefer calcium cause it's beneficial for the tank when this one just kills the aiptasia. @305mandy305

brockettmang : They will get it. Just give them a few days. My peppermint shrimp work at night. Also, if you do not feed the tank for a day, they go hunting for food and snack on the Aiptasia.
jen89eva : Haha if they aren't too busy snacking on my turbo snails! They have had 4 of them in a week and been fed! @brockettmang

Any other reefers out there that can confirm my suspicion that this is aiptasia? Starting a new 55 gallon tank and found this guy on one of the live rocks I got from my LPS. Any help would be appreciated :) #tankupdate #aiptasia #reef #reefquestion #saltwater #saltwateraquarium

Picked up a new piece of #coral #frogspawn but... I think it has #aiptasia at the bottom of it.... 😳 it's tiny and purple. I thought aiptasia was clear looking. Anyway, should I use aiptasia x on it? Perhaps it isn't aiptasia. Hard to get a good pic of it.
olopezny : Don't try to remove them, they will just multiply. Just throw in a couple of peppermint shrimps. I had a lot of aiptasia anemones in my case I threw in around 9 of them and now I'm good
txadamfitz : @olopezny thanks for the quick reply. Hmmmm mr eel might enjoy the new snacks! LOL I'll give it a shot!
olopezny : Lol yeah that guy
olopezny : May be a chance that the eel won't even eat them cause he's so use to being fed frozen. But if you do, don't just throw shrimp in. Place them by hand on sand bed.
txadamfitz : Cool I'll pick up a pair and see what happens @olopezny
txadamfitz : Well... I decided to pop off the base and frag off the end that had the other aiptasia piece. Did a dip in alternate tank water before back in the tank. @olopezny screw that #aiptasia crap!
olopezny : Did you throw in some Peppermint shrimp?
txadamfitz : Nope. Didn't want to chance the eel snacks. I pulled it out, shaved off the nasty aiptasia and glued it down to a sliver of live rock. Thus far, it's pouting. Hope it makes it through. :-/

All aiptasias are gone and so these lil buddys have to move out. We are quite sad about it 'cause they are so f****ing cool! The berghias did a great job.

thorqe : @ej4everr There are a lot of breeders here in Germany. Try searching for "Aeolidiella stephanieae" if u can't find the snails under the name "berghia"

ioana_andreea_zeres : Bello 🐠
dsm_724 : Excuse my ignorance @yaavuuz, but I've always wanted a longnose butterfly and I've always been told they are not reef safe. Would you say it is safe to have one?
yaavuuz : @dsm_724 they are reefsafe, they only eat #aiptasia which is harmfull to other corals. But it is not hard to keep them cause they don't easly get use to eat dry food. ☺️👍
yaavuuz : Sorry it is hard to keep allive tham I mean @dsm_724 :)
dsm_724 : Thank you so much for the info! Im actually on my way home with my new copperband butterfly 😊 You have no idea how long Ive been wanting this fish but no one would sell it because they say itll eat all corals! So thank you for the awesome info 👌!
yaavuuz : @dsm_724 :)) good luck wish she lives long, if she doesn't eat dry food, try some sea weed, which they use for making sushi 👍

olopezny : How do you use it? Is it safe for everything else?
mattlewis8281 : @olopezny it comes with a syringe you fill and slowly touch the aiptasia. It should grab the tip and when it does you inject them and they implode

kingwes69 : What kind of problem?
wednesdaypacker : @kingwes69 sounds like a red and green algae bloom in a newly set up tank. @two_two7 can you post a pic maybe and explain more?
mrod058 : Feed less and only do waterchanges with RODI.... What size tank and how many fish? What kind of fish? How are the nitrates? How consistent is she with water changes? Are there any corals in the tank?
wednesdaypacker : @two_two7
scupra : 👍👍👍
here_goes_me : @mrod058 in April everything in my tank died so I did a complete water change and scrubbed my rock clean, then I got a much smaller 20 gal tank that's more long than high and have been running that with no livestock or corals since April , I use the water that you pay a &1.75 for 5 gallons out of the machine at the store it's supposedly the purest water . I think my lighting may have been too much because I just replaced it with a light from my fluval 8 and the one puffer I just added to see if he would live has been acting happier., so I'm hoping that was the problem. Also the girl at the aquarium store told me this puffer wasn't aggressive as the spotted puffer. But yesterday another person at the same place told me it was and I will have a hard time finding compatible tank mates with him.. This whole deal makes my head hurt and if you want honesty? In the 2 yrs I've been trying this I've had probably $1000 in failures 😁😱😡💩👎🐠🐟
metalsue : Beautiful. I miss my tanks. 😠 It's been years since I've had some set up.
wednesdaypacker : @metalsue you should get some going again!!! Can't imagine a house without my fish 😬
