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.

Aiptasia keep coming

Pros: works

Cons: aiptasia are tough sons of guns

It works, but you have to keep doing it because the aiptasia keep coming back...a lot of aiptasia hiding deep in the rocks will keep coming out so you may have to buy multiple boxes. I believe it's the same as kalkwasser

Worked well

Pros: Worked quickly

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 of the tank.

Works!

Had an aiptasia problem on my AOI zoa frag and this took care of it! Warning though, it will kill a coral if the coral eats it!

Perfect for spot killing nuisance anemones

Pros: Great options for target killing

Cons: If you miss the mouth, it will not work and cause the aptasia to stress and reproduce.

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.

Not magic, but it works.

Pros: Will do the job, pretty easy to use

Cons: May take a while & several boxes if you have a big problem.

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 like Aiptasia-X isn't doing anything. So don't expect Aiptasia-X to work instantly if you have a big problem. You might even need to go through several boxes to get rid if a lot of 'em. But keep at it and you WILL win, & I had better results with Aiptasia-X than any other Aiptasia removal.

Temporary solution

Pros: Almost instant result

Cons: temporary solution

First time worked for a month, then every 2 weeks.
I recommenced this product if you just plan to instantly move the parasites for temporary solution

Beware

Cons: It WILL kill Anemones

Product claims to be Reef Safe - yet if you have Anemones it's NOT!!! Aiptasia is an Anemone and if this stuff kills Aiptasia it kills Anemones - ask me it killed 4 bubble tips in my tank. A marine biologist I know informed me that Aiptasia is an anemone.
