Aiptasia is seen as a very intrusive pest. We are able to get this pest into are tanks in a number of ways such as: Live rock,coral/coral plugs,used tools and equipment.etc. As Aiptasia has slowly started to take over tanks, sitting right next to corals stinging them to death, or populating by the hundreds on rock work and glass. Companies have come up with "remedies" to help combat these pests. Also hobbyist started to turn to other methods as well such as Kalk paste and lemon water, etc. I personally use Aiptasia X, but have heard of Joes Juice and others work as well. All these treatments bank on injecting the aiptasia with the paste into the mouth of the aiptasia. This can prove diffcult but we do it anyways in hopes of killing them. We try and try again to kill these pests. So the question is...is it worth us sweating about killing the aiptasia or just try and manage it. do you run an aiptasia "management tank" or a "Aiptasia prevention tank" In my eyes a "management tank" is one that accepts the fact that they will eventually get aiptasia. but instead of letting it over run the tank they controll it as much as possible. I.E. using predators such as peppermint shrimp,nudibranchs, copperband butterfly's, etc. they try not to let it get out of control by using these methods as well as chemical methods careful to not allow the pests to over run the tank and corals. "Aiptasia Prevention Tank" is a tank that quarantines everything, used dead rock, dead sand or BB and cut corals off bases and use clean plugs or no plugs to place corals in the rock work. very careful of what goes into the tank and take precautions to make sure contamination from tAnk to tank does not happen as well as rinsing equipment off before and after use. These reefers try their hardest to not have to deal with the aiptasia and if they spot some they will try to exterminate it quickly and efficiently. So is it worth sweating over these pests or can we create some type of boundary where everything is happy? Hope you enjoyed this brief write-up.
