so idk what it is but i know with my luck it is bad..... can anyone tell me what it is?
Hard to tell, but it looks kinda like the tentacles of an aiptasia.
i only saw this right now and it just looks like one now... its pretty close to my mushroom too. thats the best pic i can get but i want it gone.
Most of my aiptasia have been brown, but i have had 1 or 2 that were almost clear
what do i do here? its on a rock at the bottom so if i take it out i have to pretty much remodel the tank cuz other rocks are on top of it.
Don't take it out. Buy some Aiptasia X and squirt it.
so i shouldnt get some tweezers and try to pull it?
No id get the aiptasia x, if you leave a little piece a whole aiptasia (or two) will grow back in its spot
oh thats not good.... i heard that if i get a needle and i inject it with lemon juice then it does the job. is this true or will it kill other things
I have heard that as well, but i had no luck with it myself. They make this impossible little uninjectable lump, if your fast enough it might work, i personally just smother them with aiptasia x
well i just tried it but i think it was too fast for me and i squirted out on it not in it.......so i had this anemone in a tube that just rotted because i took it out and it disolved away and smells horrifying. im expecting a crazy spike =( more bad news.
Dude, go with Aptasia X, if you get it right on the first time, it's gone. They may be small, but they can get mighty. Usually you'll never just see on in your lifetime.
I have never had any luck with the vinegar/boiling water/lemon juice methods. Aiptasia X is the best way to go.
I put 2 peppermint shrimp in my tank and got pretty lucky. Haven't seen an aipstasia in months
Squirt that puppy with some Aiptasis-X then stand back and grin as you watch it melt away.
hahaha i guess apastia x it is!! well i havent seen it since i squirt it with the lemon juice so ima wait till i see it agian....i told my lfs if pepermint shrimp are good for it and he said that they just take out tenticles and new ones grow and make it worse. so should i get a shrimp or not? and if i do is it good with my hermits snails coral and fish?
Peppermints will eat the whole thing. And if any grow back, the peppermints will eat those too. But it helps to get several peppermints because some of them just don't like to eat them.
They will be fine in a reef tank (unless you have fish that like to eat shrimp).
