Yea, just boil the rock that you see it on. And yes, it will kill the bacteria and everything on it.

I've boiled a few pieces of my rock several times. Its not going to mess anything up. The bacteria and everything else will grow back in short order.

Is there a particular reason why you want to get rid of the aptasia? I'm just asking I don't know.

Aiptasia is a pest anemone that reproduces like wid fire. They are a stinging anemone, that walks about the rankl and can sting and kill corals, and sting fish as well. Mojano Anemone have color to them and do actually look pretty cool, but here again can multiply like crazy and sting everything.
