Tiny Aiptasia


Hello,

I never had aiptasia before, but I do now. I have a 65 gallon tank, and I noticed tiny tiny aiptasia on my live rocks (about 20 of them), and they are about 1 cm big. I looked up ways to get rid of them, but what I read is that I would have to get a chemical and inject it into the disk of the aiptasia with a needle. But they are so small, I dont know if it is possible. So I was wondering if there are other ways to get rid of them? Also, would it work if I just sucked them up through a tube that I use to do water changes when I siphon out the water? Or would that just cause a population explosion? Thank you!!!

the aptasia react immediately to the chemical, it basically force feeding them as oppsed to injectioning them...
