    Aiptasia and the Cooperbanded Butterfly

    My wife's tank has been sprouting some Aiptasia for awhile now and we've been keeping it at bay with Aiptasia X and the zapper. It got to the point that those difficult to get to were multiplying so we put in a CBB. Eradication took two weeks and he is eating frozen food too ......... !

    LiveAquaria - We also bought a red mandarin and peppermint shrimp for her tank then two 6 lines, two peppermint shrimp, and a foxface hawk for the frag tanks.

    BTW ....... I also have an asteria star outbreak going on in my tank so
    I bought a harlequin shrimp for my 90. When he came I thought he was much to small for my tank so I put him in one of the frag tanks. I netted some stars out and put them in the frag tank for him. He was eating one within the hour of introducing him. He's doing his job too!

    Anyone want to bring their aptasia infected rock and watch it be destroyed? We have yet to put a piece of rock in the tank and not have it eradicated in minutes ..............

    Anyone want a boatload of asteria stars to feed to their shrimp? I, too, have an outbreak, but I am afraid that a harequin shrimp wouldn't last 5 minutes in my tank!

    Does anyone know anything else that will eat those pesky stars?
