    who ate the Aiptasia?

    So who ate my aiptasia!!!!????
    Not that I'm complaining but it's always good to know. I picked up a green sea mat polyp colonie about a month ago when I notticed at home of course that it had two stems of Aiptasia. It's just in a 6 gal nano with a fiji damsel, dancing shrimp or camel shrimp, and blue legged hermits. Now there gone and not even a trace!!!!
    Tell me what you think?

    I know that peppermint shrimp will eat aiptasia, but I'm not sure if camel shrimp will? If I had to take a guess I would say it was the camel shrimp.

    If those pesky aiptasia ever come back I would kalk paste them. It has worked very well for me in the past.

    Aiptasia move around if they want to. It's quite possible nothting ate them, they just decided there was a better spot to be in their new tank.

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.
