    Question Weird Growth

    Hey there,
    Could someone enlighten me as to what this is, if it is harmful, and if so, how can it be removed safely? Thanks.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    That's an aiptasia - get rid of it quick, before it spreads (change the .jpg to .JPG in the link)

    Agreed get it now before it starts to spread. If you can take the rock that its on out completely and kill it. If you do it inside the tank there is a good chance it will spread!!!

    The easiest way that I have found to kill these is to inject them with vinegar. They don't spread then. It can be difficult to inject them as they retract into holes but the ones that I've injected have not come back.
