I bought two peppermint shrimp and some Joe's Juice to try and wipe out the aiptasia once and for all, I am going on the attack later tonight :wink:

We'll see how long the shrimp last, he's already tried to get them a few times. They aren't very smart, they keep going back behind the rocks where he hangs out. :hmm:

Here's some more photos taken a few minutes ago:

Thomas Jr. looks like he's out exploring more than before.

I got rid of my "Rock Enemies" (aiptasia) completely by using the method Colin recommended - a syringe and boiling water. I found I could do a number of "injections" without really affecting the water temperature. Not all were wiped out in the first pass, but the boiling water eventually killed them.
