    I'm a big fan of Kalk paste. My LFS gave me a small bag for free. It was maybe only 3-4tbsp worth put it has lasted me a long time. Just mix the Kalk with a little tank water until it is a pretty thick paste and use like Aiptasia X or Joes Juice or any other treatment.

    I have used Aip x successfully.
    Turn off pumps when you apply it, sneak up to the Aip and apply it carefully. Don't get it on your other corals.

    Sometimes it takes 2 doses but it does work but better on smaller Aip.

    You can try a mix of lemon juice and kalk in boiling water. I used that successfully.

    The results after application are not favorable so far. It was a small specimen, and I followed the directions. I even retracted the zooa polyps before application. in the picture below, I have lost (damn near vanished the one on the right in 10 minutes) or are losing the other. No word on the Aip specimen yet, too small and too much Aip-x to determine presence.
