    In regards to the Berghia Nudibranch, how many did you use and were they adults? These only eat aiptasia and should have put a dent in your aiptasia population. You'll probably need one of these per 10-15gal of tank volume. Any less than that ratio and the reproduction rate of the aiptasia will be greater than the consumption rate of the nudibranchs.

    With this level of infestation, biological control/elimination may be the only way to get rid of them.

    I have not actually used these, just that I've heard they can work. They are an expensive option so I wanted to hear about them here before I bought them.

    I've heard of these but never actually seen them. I assume they are liquids that need to be injected into the foot of the anemone?

    No you don't inject the foot. Included with the Joe's Juice or Aiptasia X is a needle and a syringe. You put the two together and then fill the needle up with the solution you get. You don't use it to inject the anemone you take the needle place it directly over anemone and press. The solution will come out and go onto the anemone. It should kill it.

    Here is a picture of the two...

    Here is the needle and syringe. You can see that the tip isn't pointed. It has an opening where the solution comes out.

    That looks like something I'm going to try. I've been injecting their foor with pure lemon juice and it works great but I have to do each and every anemone seperatly and if I don't get the foot, it does not work. Thanks for the tip.

    Should I worry about Joe's Juice or Aiptasia X harming anything else in my tank? I have a Warty Rock anemone that is surounded by glass anemone. Will juicing them kill the Wary Rock too? What about my fish/inverts. Is it going to be safe around mushroom corals and green star polyps?

    Neither have hurt anything in my tank, even when I use a lot of it. I even accidentally got Aiptasia-X on my zoanthids one time and it didn't hurt them. I have used both around mushroom corals, my GSP (Weird that we have some of the same corals!), my fish, and my inverts and it seems to have no effect on them at all. I'm not sure about your Warty Rock anemone. I don't have any anemones in my tank except for majano (trying to get rid of them!). I am reading the instructions that came with Aiptasia-X and this is what is says "...will not effect the sessile polyps of corals... Excess Aiptasia-X will decompose over time without casuing harm to the reef." I think that it will not hurt anything in your tank.

    Here is a video of Aiptasia-X that should make things clearer...

    If you can get rid of all that aiptasia, you are a stud.

    I think I am too impatient for all that. I would probably get rid of the rock and start over, lol.

    I would be a little careful about how many of the critters you inject at one time. I remember reading a post about someone overdoing it with Joe's juice and nearly killing all of their corals.

    I am going to have to agree with kaybee on this one. If you have that many anems, it is going to be really hard to get them all manually. Some form of biological control would probably be best.
