Default Is it Irony?

9 months ago my 90G had an infestation of Aiptasia so bad I thought I'd give my left hand to never see another in any of my tanks.

After adding 6 Adult Berghia back then, fast forward to the present.

There was so much food for the nudi's they had a population explosion and I had a lucrative little business selling them to area reefers @ $15.00 each.

The supply of aip's was wiped out in the 90 a month before I tore it down and moved it.
The supply in the tank I was growing them in to feed my little money makers has been depleted.
I've been forced to sell of all but a few juvi's and 3 egg coils, at reduced prices, in hopes of locating a couple good sized rocks with a plague of aiptasia on each.
After running ads on all three area reef club forums it seems there is a 200 mile radius around me where the planet has become an aip free zone.

Now I'd almost give my left hand just to see a live one.

I have a Jason Fox chalice surrounded by 3 aiptasia's...they won't die. I've Joe Juiced 'em, lemmon juiced 'em, and injected boiling water into their mouths. Pecky little buggers. Any way, I'll sell you the aiptasia's for $200, and you'll get the JF chalice for free! How bout it?!

Ya know if I had $200 I'd take you up on that.
I just added a JF Meteor Shower and 1 polyp of Eye of War not long ago.

Suggestion:

Andy, pop off as much of the chalice as you can; sell remaining rock to reefmonkey.



If nothing else, I'd do the putty solution to those 3 aip's you can't kill.

The chalice in on a plug in my frag tank.

Putty is my next step. Gotta go to Home Depot tomorrow anyway, and was planning on picking up some epoxy to rid the plug of those pests.

I thought maybe people were/are ashamed to admit they have them so I've even offered to pay for the beasts. .25 each or $6.50/lb for rock with them attached to it. Still there doesn't seem to be any in this part of the midwest. LOL

I thought about asking here but I don't want to pay shipping and for a rock. Especially if I can just find one nem locally I can make it turn in into 20 in a week. LOL
