Any update on how your butterfly is doing? Still leaving corals alone? I tried adding nudis again like last time but my marine betta ate them all before they could eat the aptasia so I'm looking into a kleini now...

Unfortunately it had to go! I first pulled a couple of finger leathers it was picking at and then a few zoas/palys. But I quickly found out if I kept the Kleini this would become a FOWLR tank.

I really liked the fish, but traded it in at the LFS. It did eat all of the aiptasia at the time. Some has come back, but not much at this point.

Have you tried peppermint shrimp? I put 3 in one of my tanks that had some scattered aiptasia. The aiptasia is now gone.

I might try that route again, first time the peppermints wiped out my acans instead of what they were there for. I haven't tried them again because my marine betta finds all other shrimp delicious....
 

Are you still ordering livestock or are you going to wait it out?
