3 little aptasias in a little tank

I never thought one of these would ever pop out in my tank after 6 months of owning it.

This little 3 gallon, stopped doing great since the little fish that lived in there jumped out. Coraline algea also stopped growing since that fish died leaving his pistol buddy in there only. A bunch of bubble algea came out too.

I'm wondering how can I kill those 3 aptasias before they become really bad, and if the fact that the little goby jumped out is the cause for all of this happening. Or is it because I feed a lot less now?

If they're on a rock you can take out of the tank just take out the rock and let it dry for a couple of days. If not, peppermint shrimp worked for me.

Current Tank Info: 110 & 35 gal. display tanks sharing a 4 tank, 120 gal. sump/fuge system type thing in the basement. Oh yeah, there's a 55 gal. FW too, forgot about that one.

You can try Joes Juice. It works pretty good. I would take care of it as soon as possible before you get more.
