    I would get a Heniochus butterfly fish there are some that are reef safe.They do wonders on Aptasia but if not go with Joes Juice i have heard of alot of Success with that product.

    how bad is the aptasia? you can buy a syringe and use either HOT vinegar and do a few at a time or JOES JUICE has been recommended. peppermints are a hit/miss and the CB is not recommended as the tank is a little on the small side for them.

    Peppermint Shrimps are an illegal import here, and we don't have Joe's juice.
    I have about 9 -10 of them and some are monsters.
    I use vinegar and have found no-matter how much I inject into the mouth they grow back. I pumped 60cc into one monster and within the week it had re-appeared. I removed any remains too.
    I haven't tried it hot yet, vinegar that is!!!!
    How hot do you make it? Microwave or boil?
    I've got syringes (and gloves coming from the vet's), I find that I have to re-adjust the ph when I do it. I usually add buffer at the same time.
    May I have some instructions please????

    I don't know the routine with vinegar, but here's instructions on a lemon juice method:

    Before I had my Copperband, I had just a couple Aiptasia and none of the treatments worked. What DID work for me was to simply putty them into their own holes!!!

    Thanks for the lemon juice link, I'm printing it off now.

    What putty do you use? I've heard of people using a Kalk paste, but they're too big to paste in.
