    I have read that you can inject with lemon juice concentrate which is cheap and it is supposed to be reef safe. Inject in the stem. Anyone else heard of this?

    Yes, they are terrible. Will sting your other corals to death and will make your tank void of life..........

    what type of pollyp rock do you have, peppermint shrimps wont go after corals, although ive seen mine take a few tiny feather dusters right out of there little homes and eat them.... the aptasia are bad because they grow to outragous proportions, take over tanks, and can sting your coral.
