Aip X is great. Just be warned, you have to go back in every few days and check and eradicate, cause there will be more. I've been fighting an outbreak for quite awhile from an introduction from some corals awhile back. If you keep up with it, you may get them all in the long run.

Buy a Racoon Butterfly. I have a 150 that became overun and AipX only held it in check if I used religiously. The Racoon has literally WIPED IT OUT, GONE, NONE. He is a beast with Aipstasia -- if I add live rock with some it soon disappears.

Only problem is he loves corals -- it's a love/hate relationship. Some he eats (Star Polyps) and some not (Kenyon Trees).

I have a Klein Butterfly and he has eaten it all, there is one rather large one under a rock which he cant get to.

It is the last one, I will get it tomorrow.

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.
