You are spot on, the Green Star Polyps are already gone or hiding :( The rock is also totally infested with aiptasia. I was looking really close last night and noticed its popping up between the corals and even spreading to the sand. I counted at least 20

Does anyone have Berghia Nudibranchs? I read that they only eat aiptasia.

Yes, that's one good one to get, Peppermint Shrimp are another, and if the tank was big enough, Copperbanded Butterfly is another.

I don't understand. We were talking about critters or fish that would eat Aiptasia. ??

Not in the beginning, no. They grow and tick each other off. The tanks you see that have all the corals on top of each other don't really do well. Coral needs room to grow, and some corals are like fish, some are peaceful, and some will kill another coral for its space.

I think I have a pistol shrimp. Are there any other creatures that make that click click noise? I read that they can hitchhike on live rock.

Oh crap. Thats not a Pistol Shrimp, thats a Mantis Shrimp. You need to catch that thing and remove it.
