Aiptasia problem..

Hi.

I like many others have aiptasia problem. i recently maneged to get rid of all of them....almost all of them, one survived and now they are 4.
The problem is is that they are based on the most expensive rock in the tank, which is infested by beautiful ricordea.
So here is my idea, isolate the rock along with my 2 peppermint shrimp, reckon this will work? if so, what´s the best way of cathing those shrimps?


Thanks in advance!

You can try adding a few more peppermints to the tank. You could also try using Joe's Juice. I have used Joes Juice but i have so many in my tank that i am always missing some. You could also remove the rock if possible and put it in another tank like you asked and just get a few more peppermints and add it to the other tank, that way you don't have to try and catch them out of the display tank.

If i place the rock (not big) along with the shrimps then the shrimps are bound to grace on those aiptasia if not provided with another source of food? i could lure them with food, and get them that way in my net....
