    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.
