Hi,

So like most everyone here probably has dealt with aiptasias and tried everything to remove but failed. I am to the point where I ran out of options as it seems that everytime I use Aiptasia-X or F, kills them and just comes back. After doing some extensive research, I came across this option I never knew existed "The Majano Wand". It is not cheap, but honestly if this thing worked as advertised I would of paid double! I was so excited to get this piece of equipment and started to use as directed. At first it seemed that it worked, meaning that as soon as I used an the aiptasia it sunk into the rock - showing signs that it was dead. I was excited, but next day it came back with a vengeance :-( I mean is this thing just supposed to tick them off. I thought it was supposed to kill them.

Has anyone here successfully removed aiptasia using the majano wand?

My other important question is, can I remove the rock into a bucket with saltwater and scrub it until it looks like aiptasia is removed? the concern I have here is removing any beneficial bacteria.

Any suggested / comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

yea, I should have mentioned that this is my FOWLR tank - have softies and anenomes which my angels leave alone. Peppermint shrimp would be eaten by my triggers unfortunately.

Only bad thing about scrubbing the rock is if they leave a skin tag or a few cells behind they'll just come back.
Thanks. Yeah, I was thinking that maybe a possible drawback. I did read you can squirt Hydrogen Poroxide. However, I am concerned that it would kill beneficial bacteria.
