Hi guys, 

 

Anyone able to id this for me, just noticed after repositioning my newish Xenia, was dipped prior to putting in tank with nothing found. 

 

Any help appreciated.

Aptasia or mojano anemone, I believe. If so it needs to be gone. I’ll let smarter minds than mine chime in but if it is it’ll spread rather quickly. Looks healthy enough to become a problem. Pull thr frag if possible, scrape it off and cover the spot with super glue.

Aptasia.  It’s a type of anemone and looks cool if it’s just one.  The problem is it can spread like wild fire.

 

get some lemon juice from concentrate. Throw a little in a mug in the microwave  until it boils.  Shoot the boiling lemon juice into the mouth of the aptasia using a syringe and you’ll never see it again.  Good luck!

Thanks for the replies, only the one as far as I can see. 

 

Could I just blade it off, or would it likely grow back?

Don't cut it, it will grow back. Chemical warfare is the way to go. Lemon juice, kalkwausser, or Aiptasia X.
