doesn't look like tonga branch to me either.


Personally, I'm offended. Tom's thread is gold. Platinum, even.

I'm pretty sure it's tonga, just found a lot more
aiptasia tho. What would be the best way to take cair of this?
I just put this rock in a cycling tank yesterday should I take it out and treat it
With something, before it spreads to all the other rock.
I was going to try injecting lemon but now that I found all these little ones there so small
I don't see being able to get them all with a needle.

Take the rock out, burn the aiptasia, and put the rock back in.

Peppermint shrimp will eat them. Just make sure you get a real peppermint, sometimes camel shrimp get sold as peppermints, but they won't do the job.

Something tells me my problem has been solved,
I guess it's better to take the loss now rather then latter.

Mine won't touch it and I'm certain it's a peppermint. I know some peppermints do kill it, but not all will. Just my personal experience.

Out of 7 or 8 I've purchased, all but one ate aiptasia. In that one case, I solved it by just getting another one :)
