Just wondering if Aiptasia are ok in a Fish only tank or do they sting fish also- might add some interesting aquascape to a FO w/ LR tank.

Put some shrooms in there too, red ones they will help filter the water and will love the level of organics the fish supply.

I had a few and was so worried. Thought I had a peppermint shrimp but come to find out it was a coral banded. Any way I noticed all my aiptasia are gone. I don't know who got them but someone did. I also have a sally light foot crab, some cleaner crabs, and snails. I didn't think any of these guys eat the pest but someone obviously had a taste for them. Just leave them if they do go crazy you want to get rid of them you can.

technically theyre ok. but if you ever want to 'upgrade' to a reef or sell the rock (if you EEK! leave the hobby) you will be kicking yourself that you didnt get rid of them now. just a thought.
