    I purchased a new product(forget the name right now) from Marinescape that works much better than joes juice. Its more of a paste/foam than a liquid... works like a charm!!

    I filled a 3ml syringe with boiling water. Two 1ml blasts killed my Aiptasia.

    The organism dissolved and broke apart. I was concerned that the pieces might regenerate elsewhere in the tank, but it's been almost 2 months and no sign of it.

    so you just have to spray them over the head and not actually inject them?

    Yeah, I didn't have a needle on the syringe. I just got close to the aiptasia and blasted it in the open head. There were no other organisms nearby, so I wasn't concerned about the hot water affecting anything else.

    It probably would work, I'm just not sure how you would go about doing it.
