The Majano Wand takes a easy approach to removing Majano Anemones from your reef aquarium. It`s so fun and easy you will want Majano Anemones, just so you can destroy them!
The purpose of the Majano Wand is to eliminate Majano Anemones in hobbyist aquariums, as these Anemones are pests. Majano Anemones are pests because they harm fish and coral. Such “pest” Anemones that are inadvertently added to aquariums can multiply very quickly in closed aquarium system.
The Majano Wand does not kill by electrocution, there is never any electricity going into the water. The Majano Wand operates on the principal that when electricity is properly emitted into salt water it produces two gases. One of these gases is hydrogen, which is generated at the stainless steel tip. Hydrogen is the lightest element on earth, which converts into a gas when created, and the gas form of hydrogen is larger than the liquid size of salt water. When the probe of the Majano Wand touches the Majano tissue, it causes the water in the cells of the Majano to turn into hydrogen. These animals are mostly water so the Majano is forced to expand from the inside out at a rapid and drastic scale, which literally disintegrates any living Majano tissue instantly.
The Majano Wand operates on low voltage and will not shock you if your hand, or any part of your body, is in the water. However, care must be taken to ensure safety as the tip of the Majano Wand is sharp.
The entire Majano Wand (including the grey wire) can be submerged in water, but do not get the push button or power adapter wet.
We are proud to write that the Majano Wand was Invented, designed, tested and Manufactured in the USA!
**Please Note: If the user does not fully kill the aiptasia by eliminating all the tissue on the first attempt, the remaining bits will regrow into another aiptasia.
- 1. Uncoil the wires and plug in the power supply. Carefully, remove the plastic cap on the tip of the Majano Wand.
- 2.Push the button, as you stick the needle in/out and on/over a Majano. Do Not Hold The Button Down when not touching a Majano.
- 3. Keep sticking the needle in/out and sliding it across the Majano, as it will only kill the parts of the Majano that touch the needle. After five or six insertions, the anemone should be all white and gooey looking.
- 4. If you see any tentacles or tissue still alive, just touch them/it with the needle while pushing the button. It is sometimes easier to slide the side of the probe along the Majano rather than stick it.
- 5. If you do not kill the entire animal it is possible for it to regrow in a short amount of time. White “goo” should float to the top when the Majano is dead, remove this goo. Repeat steps 2 and 3 when needed.
- 6. Don’t keep the button pushed continuously (we are not talking about a minute or two here, we are talking about a larger scale) as the device does emit some gases into the water. (see chart below) After an hour, you can use it again.
- 7. When finished, Run/Soak the tip in fresh water for a minute and dry completely.
- 8. Replace the cap and store in original box for safety.
Keep the device away from children and be very careful that you don’t stick anyone.
Remember, the rod is acrylic and very fragile, it can break, don’t bend it.
Always keep the push button and power adapter out of water.
The probe is dulled but still sharp, be careful.
Only use according to the directions.
The Majano Wand was invented by Paul Baldassano. Paul got into the saltwater hobby the same month saltwater fish became available in Manhattan – around 1971. An electrician by trade, Paul discovered if you pass DC voltage through saltwater, you generate hydrogen and chlorine – the water actually splits and becomes these gases. That discovery inspired him to use those gases to eliminate animals in his tank that he did not want. That was the beginning of the Majano Wand!
Paul built a prototype and, to his amazement, it disintegrated the majano aneomones in his tank. He built a more compact model, showed his friends, and they begged him to build this device for them. It dawned on Paul that this tool would really benefit the marine aquarium hobby which encouraged him to apply for a patent. The Majano Wand is Paul`s second patent for an aquarium-related device (the first was a seahorse feeder.)
The Majano Wand was invented, designed, tested, and assembled in the USA!
