Aptasia control
#1
What is the best way to control aptasia? Was thinking of file fish or peppermint shrimp but really dont want to risk them eating coral.

 peppermint shrimp are hit or miss,file fish or a Copperband Butterflyfish but  is a difficult fish to feed

Get some aptasia X by redsea, It works very well. Kill as many as you can, then add some peppermint shrimp to keep them from coming back. Killing off all the big ones initialy is the key to success.

Go with a file fish IMHO ... 'Easy' fish to catch if it goes after your corals when the Aptasia are gone. Always someone looking for one.

I got aptasia-x. Worked like a charm last week. I wouldn’t risk a butterfly fish in a coral tank
