Has anyone had these before and successfully gotten rid of them ? Used F-Aiptasia for the initial batch…worked okay on the ones that were on a horizontal surface, but on the vertical ones, you cant get the paste to stick without it going everywhere ! Lost a RBTA cuz of it falling off…no biggie there though.

Then I started to manually remove them with an auto pick, looks like a dental pick. Been doing this about once a week as they continually pop up…then I just read that when threatened they release spores, like Aiptasia,, to spread even more !! Mannnn….here I thought I was doing something that was helping and was probably making it worse ! This would explain why they keep popping up everywhere !

Any ideas ?….

I find them easier to control than aiptasia. Boiling hot vinegar. I wait until they get pretty big then inject them. They seem to die off after the vinegar. Sometimes they just fall off the rock after injecting.
