Red Sea Aiptasia-X Treatment Kit Information




Red Sea Aiptasia-X

In an exciting development for reef-keepers Red Sea has developed a unique patent pending formula to treat the pest anemones Aiptasia sp., Anemonia majano and Boloceroides sp. Affecting almost every reef aquarium, Aiptasia (otherwise known as glass anemones), are often introduced via live rock or corals and can quickly reach plague proportions in marine aquaria, destroying corals and other marine livestock with devastating effect.

Existing treatments are often unsuccessful as when threatened Aiptasia quickly retract into holes in the rock and release planula (larvae) in to the aquarium which can rapidly develop in to full anemones. Additionally any part of the anemone`s body left attached to a rock can regenerate into a full anemone. Many treatments can therefore lead to a proliferation rather than the removal of Aiptasia.

Research and development work carried out by Red Sea has led to the development of Aiptasia-X, a product which overcomes the problems usually associated with Aiptasia treatments thanks to its unique formula.

Aiptasia-X consists of natural components which form a uniquely thick, adhesive material. Instead of causing the Aiptasia to feel threatened, the unique formula is sensed as food stimulating the anemone to expand and ingest the material. The adhesive form of the treatment makes both the application of the material easy as well as sealing the anemone`s mouth preventing any release of planula. Within minutes of applying the material the Aiptasia will implode, eradicating both the anemone and its planula.

Red Sea`s new treatment is completely reef-safe and any material not ingested by the Aiptasia is harmless to sessile invertebrates. Excess material will decay harmlessly over time without any adverse consequences.

Easy to use and highly effective, Aiptasia-X provides a solution long sought-after by almost every reef-keeper at one time or another in the life of their aquarium.

The Aiptasia-X kit includes a 60ml bottle of material plus an applicator set consisting of a syringe with 2 (straight and angled) lock-on applicator tips enabling treatment of even the most inaccessible of anemones. The 60ml provided in the kit should be sufficient to treat approximately 100 Aiptasia anemones.

A 415ml refill is also available and is designed to be decanted in to the 60ml bottle for use with the applicator set.

Comments: This product works exceptionally well and is quick! Prior to using Aiptasia-X I had to obtain a syringe and inject each one with the risk or the anemone spreading more, with this item, I was easily able to remove a good 95% of them with the first treatment and within another two times I was able to remove the smallest ones I could find and have yet to see any more; however, I will be ordering another bottle to have if the time ever comes again.

Comments: It looks like it's working but I believe that the aiptasia actually multiply shortly after application. Does not work for me in the long term.

Comments: This treatment is great. It is easy to inject the product into the mouth of the Alptasia, without it disapearing quickly into the rock. The adhesive nature of the treatment ensures it stays on the Alptasia, without spreading into the surrounding water. Easy and totally effective. Would recomend it.

Comments: I've tried various products. This work best for me. The anemones don't hide as fast and the solution covers them in a white creamy like coating. The applicator connects well to the syringe. The curved applicator is a a nice addition for harder to reach anemones. In addition, change your water and have patience. These critters are cagey, so it may take several events to rid your tank. Depends on your level of infestation .. I plan to keep a container on hand. Be aware that any time you add new stuff, there's a risk. Also peppermint shrimp can be useful. However some shrimps like Aiptaiasias some don't. And some like corals. Good luck and remember: Patience and Perseverence

Comments: Aiptasia, that great bane of reef keepers everywhere! If you have to do battle, this will quickly become one of your best friends. It isn't cheap, but a weekly manual extermination session with this stuff plus a few peppermint shrimp or other aiptasia munchers will start to bring the infestation under control in no time. Seems to work similar to the old stand by of Kalk, except you don't have to have such a steady hand to inject it, you simply feed it to the Aiptasia, and it doesn't send your pH through the roof, even if you use quite a bit.

Comments: Most of these reviews are from people that just used the aiptasia killer, yet haven't waited to see if they return. I've used the product a dozen times and 75% of the treated aiptasia come back.
