Tonga Branch (aiptasia)?

Just got a pice of tonga branch for a new 38 gallon reef, but I was wondering if any

Of this might be aiptasia?

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 :)
