what is this
i just bought a saltwater reef tank and found these on one of the live rocks
Form of Aiptasia. Get rid of them.
how do you get rid of them ??? is there an easy way?
ok thanks so much
Aptasia X works well too and also peppermint shrimp will eat them.
I've been gathering information for alittle bit in preperation for when I eventually get a saltwater tank but have never seen these guys before. Why are they so bad?
They will spread fast and sting your corals. They are kind of pretty but not worth it
Hmm.. so in a FOWLR tank they would be ok though?
Some say that they might actually be beneficial in a FOWLR as extra filters however in a fowlr with messy eaters will cause aiptasia to spread even faster and get out of control. It just depends on if you want to constantly maintain the population.
