    I am almost Serbian I have at least one aptasia and another un identified creature. Correct me if I am wrong but not a great thing to have because they sting coral.

    Definitely aiptasia standing tall and proud. Nuke it with Aiptasia X or lemon juice or boiling water.

    The bottom one looks like a small bubble tip anemone but it isn't a real good pic so it is hard to be 100%.

    By the way, what are you if you are almost Serbian?:D

    I guess I should of explained better--- you can draw up boiling water in a syringe and inject it into the aiptasia. ;)

    No I knew what you meant but wanted to be 100% sure and I was moving rocks anyway.

    Aiptasia won't move, but there would be no guarantee on whether it would die by being covered with sand.

    All is well I picked up 3 peppermint shrimp and don't plan on feeding them till they are gone. No fish to feed yet so I took the easy way.
