    I have an Aiptasia right in the middle of my Zoas also. I am reluctant to use Chem Marin's Stop Aiptasia becauuse I have seen it kill corals.

    Pull aiptasia out with tweezers?

    hydroids suck ass i have them and have been trying to kill them for a couple years. one thing that kinda worked is i epoxyed the spot that they were and i also superglued them shut well covered them in superglue than scraped them off the rock but they just come back somewhere else

    you should remove the piece and treat it else where so it does not invade the rest of your display tank, also there are some species of starfish which eat hydriods, but you must first identify the hydriod species, and I read that some not reef nudibranchs may in fact consume them as well.
