    Saw some months back you guys were in development of a possible in-tank reef safe aiptasia remedy. Any progress on this?

    I just bought F-Aiptasia from Frank's Tank's. I don't think it's a UWC product ...

    Correct. UWC had mentioned an in tank treatment for them a while back. F-aiptasia appears to be a concentrated kalk paste. It solidifies on the anemone just like kalk paste does if you use it thick enough, and users report an acute spike in PH and alk upon administering it. I’ve been using kalk paste for a while and it is moderately effective. It absolutely kills the small ones dead and for good. The giant ones it will melt them down to blob but they reproduce and come back without immediate reapplication once it’s visible again

    Is it any different than Aiptasia-X? Sounds similar.

    Try Frank's F Aptasia impressive. It's better than aptasia x, kalk paste. I'm crossing my fingers, I may be aptasia free after years of battles.

    F-aptasia works!

    I had some the size of small rock flower anemones, this stuff killed them right down to bare rock again. Anything you get it on, it will kill.

    Different then aptasia-X or kalk paste,but similar. Not sure whats in it, but I have 3 that kept coming back on a clm shell regardless of what I tried. A month after F-aptasia and they still have not shown their ugly heads.

    EDIT:
    Sorry, hate to talk up a competitors product on a sponsor forum, just realized I was in a different sponsor section.
