    ^if its aiptasia it'll retract into the rock before you can smash it. Which won't kill it anyways.

    Two words...blow torch. Seriously, take the rock out and torch the hole the nem lives in. Otherwise kalk paste the aptasia and hope you kill it before it spews demons.

    No, you need to get some sort of killer. Joe's Juice works, though I've never used it personally.

    OOH! I do like the blow torch idea :P

    Agreed.

    The last one I saw pop up (may have been a feather duster, was tiny and I go with the old witch trial methods...if it dies, "oops, sorry little duster". if it survives, "damned aiptasia!") I took the rock out, covered the nem's home in superglue...then epoxy...then more superglue...then covered that corner of the rock in epoxy...then more superglue. It's probably still alive under all that too, evil little buggers.


    Joe's Juice gets mixed reviews. Seems to work for some people and not for others. Personally I'm all for the "nuke it into oblivion and be done with it" ideas. Poisoning is just not all that fun.

    I honest to god think I may adopt the laser method for my Majanos. Can't get to some of them any other way/they're too close to coral or other life.

    I like super gluing the hole shut too. That's one of my personal favorites lol.

    I'm going to have to get a better look at it, as far as I could tell it wasn't in a hole. Just sitting on a flat part of the rock. I tried googling a picture of a tiny aiptasia, didn't find anything similar. It's really too small to take a pic of.

    No I have not only because I only have 3 or 4 at a time and because when the nems are gone the nudi starves.

    If something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.

    Looks like feather dusters. Can't tell without seeing the tube one out, but you may have two types. One type being the tiny, mostly clear types and the other being a larger darker type with a more pronounced tube-body.
