    lol can you tell they're a bad thing. Sorry but that just made me laugh. Yes they must die, painfully.

    Yep, they're a bad thing. Get rid of them soon as they spread quickly.

    I also recommend Joe's juice. I've accidentally nuked other coral with it & only the aptasia died. You may need to apply it a second or third time depending on how bad the infestation is & how well they hide.

    Cheers!

    Wow! Those are some bigass aiptasia. I've never seem them that big. Are we sure that's what they are?

    I've got half a dozen in my tank that I've been too lazy to kill. I got the rest with a syringe filled with vinegar.

    The scale got me at first too. It's a close up, the second picture has an astrea shell in the foreground. They're still pretty big, but not the monsters I'd first thought

    Cheers!
