    Anyone use lasers to kill these pests?

    I nearly bought one, but I read really conflicting stories of them actually working vs. just causing the aiptasia to stress out and multiply faster. Chad has one (CRWreef) you could PM him. I ultimately settled on Mrs. Wages Pickling Lime powder at Wal-Mart for $3. Mix 1 tablespoon with just enough water to make a thick paste and put it in a syringe and apply to the aiptasias. It worked very well for me, and for that price it beat the cost of a laser 100 times over.

    Even if you can get it to work (most have issues), it will only get the ones that you can see.
