    We have the tiniest aiptasia right in the middle of our new zoanthids.. apparently it hitchiked! Can we get rid of it without harming the zoas?

    We use vinegar in a syringe to get rid of aiptasia with success.

    Yes, but instead of vinegar, I think you'd have better luck with Aiptasia X. It's easier to apply and not get on stuff around it.

    We just used what we had on hand :) We haven't done anything yet, but when we do I just hope we don't hurt our little zoas.
