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.

Q
Is a coral and anemone safe ?
Asked : Feb 18, 2018
By : Ashley
 
 
 
A
As long as you follow directions, it is safe. You have to keep water movement still for 15 minutes and not get it directly on corals. I've had great success with this product.

REVIEW
We had some small and large aptasia we needed to rid of in our tank. It worked very fast and was fun watching them explode (as horrible as that sounds). A little bit seemed to go a long way and it worked very quickly. We have other inverts in our tank as well as anemones and it didn't harm the rest ...Read More

Great options for target killing
CONS
If you miss the mouth, it will not work and cause the aptasia to stress and reproduce.
REVIEW
At first I was excited that my tank was supporting a surprise life form. Then everyone said if I don’t kill it, it will destroy all life in my tank, or something like that.

May take a while & several boxes if you have a big problem.
REVIEW
Aiptaisa are like those little tiny dinosaurs that ate Newman in Jurassic Park. Sure, they're only mildly annoying if you only have one or two around, but once you get a whole swarm you're really in trouble.
I've had aquariums that were overrun with the little buggers, and sometimes it seems lik...Read More
