How did I miss this…….
They are actually hard to keep in a tank with no fish or regular feedings. Mine get a little mysis every other day. The little 2.5 if not fed will bottom out nutrients, as the rock is 19
years wet lol.

I have thought about a farm in the garage with and old 6’x3’x1’ tank I have, but not tying it into something that gets good dispersed and fish poop daily mean more work. Plus the macro grow out tub would need to move. Not taking a chance in them getting in it. So I setup an NPS nem tank instead. All coastal nems from Florida.

At the right angle, they are pretty

Tank has aips, majano and a few hermit crab nems.

Pretty or no, I'm not looking forward to fighting this off. I've got a HUGE pearl bubble coral coming my way because it's owner gave up on his tank. He said I have to keep it in isolation and kill off the aiptasia before adding it to my new DT. I don't see any in the realtors picture but I believe him when he says it's there. The coral is just too amazing to pass up. Gotta give it a try, right? Maybe I should order a file fish from Divers Den and let them be tank buddies for a couple months...this will literally be the only thing in my old 90 gallon until it is clean. Should we take bets now???

Is this an attempt at logic humor?
Lol! Yes, I suppose it could be taken that way! I am also curious now that I thought about the concept of clean aiptasia! o_O
