Aiptasia-X is a unique, thick adhesive mixture that globulates on contact with the aquarium water.
It is easily injected near to the oral disk of the anemone and stimulates the anemone to ingest the material without causing it to withdraw. Within minutes of ingesting the Aiptasia-X the anemone will implode, eradicating both the anemone and planulas.
Aiptasia-X globules will not affect the sessile polyps of corals and allows for the safe treatment of Aiptasia that have grown inside coral colonies. Excess Aiptasia-X will decompose over time without causing any harm to the reef.
