It's funny the type of BS a LFS will feed you when they dont know the answers. They tell you that so that you think you got some huge deal and will buy more LR from them.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

Good Advice! Try that first. If you bleach the LR, you kill everything in it. then you are left with base rock. Try adding a few Peppermint shrimp first. there are also other methods available (Kalkwasser paste, lemon juice) for getting rid of the bigger ones.

I got some Bergia Nudibrachs, the aptasia is all gone. And I know that bleaching the rock kills everything, it'll all come back. I just took out the rocks that were heavily covered. Not all of them, then left the one that little anenome was on which had about ten of them on it. I was watching for the Aptasia and caught it very early and I hope the problem is cured. At this point I have alot of live rock and coral and fish in that tank and anymore would over crowd so have no intentions of adding anyone. Got my Berghia at saltyunderground.com online, good people great service, healthly little guys. Thank you everyone for the advise, I was a little concerned with the peppermint shrimp going after the baby anenome. I did purchase a new anenome crab and I was noticing that the Aptasia was dissapearing before the Berghia came in. I suspect he may have been eating them.
