I fed them Seachem's Reef Complete with a syringe. The next day, only a few survivors, which I re-fed. I'll be home to check on them this weekend but, so far so good...
Like 5 months after setting up my tank, i had aiptasia throught the whole tank, but small. So what was recomended at the time was to make 50-50 solution of warm water and muratic acid, and inject it or atleast pressure spray the aiptasia with it. Back then i had very lil bit of corals, and seemed to work great and didnt kill neither fish or corals i had. Havent had no more aiptasia for 3 years.
turbo-did you have to inject them or were you able to just squirt them? Mine are back, and I am rarely able to inject them. I, too, have very few corals, os I would be ok using something like the acid. You can get that at Home Depot, right?
I've had good luck with Kalk paste and a turkey baster.
I tried my best to inject, but found myself basically squirting them, any pool supply store is bound to give you a small container at no cost, or yeah, homedepot has.
i have heard of other positive experiences by reefers using this product as well....
I had a problem with aiptasia in my 20 gallon. I bought 4 peppermint shrimp and ten days later the problem seems to have been taken care of.
the peppermints work fine for the juveniles- as for the adults find what seems to work best for you - use a flashlight on ALL you nooks and crannies- if you have one you have one hundred- and then there is the most important part- PERSISTANCE and VIGILANCE- good luck!
ssnake, how many shrimp would you get for a 55 gal? does it just depend on how many aiptasias I got?
