I put a peppermint shrimp in my tank and didn't feed him until all the aptasia was gone, I had a hard time getting them all. He did a great job

Just let the rock dry out, that will kill it or aptasia x, you squirt it into the opening and it kills him

The sponge will die as soon as you expose it to air, but don't worry you'll get plenty of sponges in the future

Depending on how large your system is & how long the rock has been in there you’ll want to keep a close eye on things for more that may show up.
