Full Details

In an exciting development for reef-keepers Red Sea has developed a unique patent pending formula to treat the pest anemones Aiptasia sp., Anemonia majano and Boloceroides sp.

Aiptasia (otherwise known as glass anemones) are often introduced via live rock or corals and can quickly reach plague proportions in marine aquaria, destroying corals and other marine livestock with devastating effect.
Existing treatments are often unsuccessful as when threatened Aiptasia quickly retract into holes in the rock and release planula (larvae) in to the aquarium which can rapidly develop in to full anemones. Additionally any part of the anemone’s body left attached to a rock can regenerate into a full anemone. Many treatments can therefore lead to a proliferation rather than the removal of Aiptasia.

Through research and development carried out by Red Sea Aiptasia-X was created. This product overcomes the problems usually associated with Aiptasia treatments thanks to its unique formula.

Aiptasia-X consists of natural components which form a uniquely thick, adhesive material. Instead of causing the Aiptasia to feel threatened, the unique formula is sensed as food stimulating the anemone to expand and ingest the material. The adhesive form of the treatment makes both the application of the material easy as well as sealing the anemone’s mouth preventing any release of planula. Within minutes of applying the material the Aiptasia will implode, eradicating both the anemone and its planula.

Red Sea’s new treatment is completely reef-safe and any material not ingested by the Aiptasia is harmless to sessile invertebrates. Excess material will decay harmlessly over time without any adverse consequences.

Easy to use and highly effective, Aiptasia-X provides a solution long sought-after by almost every reef-keeper at one time or another in the life of their aquarium.

The Aiptasia-X kit includes a 60ml bottle of material plus an applicator set consisting of a syringe with 2 (straight and angled) lock-on applicator tips enabling treatment of even the most inaccessible of anemones. The 60ml provided in the kit should be sufficient to treat approximately 100 Aiptasia anemones.

  • Awesome! By Tim on 1/8/2015

    Let the tank go to long. Aiptasia-X does a great job at cleaning these pest up.
  • Aiptasia-X By Pegasus on 1/6/2015

    I've seen lots of posts about people using this product, and when I had an explosion of Aiptasia in my tanks, I knew what to get. A single dose eradicated all but a couple of these pests. I didn't get quite enough in their mouths, but another treatment after 24 hours does the trick! This stuff is amazing, it's reef safe, and I HIGHLY recommend it for eliminating pesky Aiptasia,
  • Awesome product! By Sgt Harold on 12/29/2014

    This is my second bottle! I gave 7 ranks and this kills aptisa on the spot!
  • Would highly recommend By Darrell on 12/11/2014

    I would highly recommend this work wonderfully took care of the problem with one shot
  • Aiptasia-X works!!! By H2Obsession on 9/21/2014

    Aiptasia-X works in 1 easy application!

    Faced with an EXPLOSION of Aiptasia in my 120 mixed reef I went straight to the "Majano Wand" and it helped along with pepermint shrimp but nowhere as easy or as fast as Aiptasia-X.

    Get the refil and use any old printer refil syringe, split it with a reef buddy.
  • it works By Josh on 7/13/2014

    Works just fine
  • Great product By Adam on 6/22/2014

    This stuff really works great, easy use, it only took one application to get rid if thease pests. Definitely worth buying highly recommend.
  • Kills aptasia By Denise on 5/12/2014

    This works great on killing aptasia without harming surrounding corals. I've used kalkwasser paste, but it always seems to drip onto my corals. I like using this much better. The aptasia ingests it and then dies.
  • WOW! By Stephane on 5/1/2014

    I've took over a tank from someone that was going out of the hobby and it was full of Aiptasia. They already tried with 3 peppermint shrimp but was not 'winning' the battle. So i did a bit of research and saw this product. It seems less complicated than the other 'stuff' out there so i tried it. IT WORKS. you have to do it right however and it was tricky to learn but once i got the trick i was able to take care of most of the Aiptasia and let the peppermint shrimp take care of the rest. I am no free of this pest.

    The trick is to turn off ur pumps to have NO flow. then right near the tentacles, spray a bit (to fast and it will close up). once a bit of it touches the Aiptasia will think its food and will start to close up on it, this is where u push out a little more to cover the 'surface' with it. repeat if needed but a well done treatment will be successful. after a few minutes of treatment, turn on the pumps repeat everyday if need needed until ur cleared!
  • Bye bye Aiptasia By Scott on 4/20/2014

    I had a few start to grow quickly on my new live rock. This product worked great and was easy to use. Only took a little bit to do the trick. Follow instructions and you should have no problems
  • Worked like a charm on! By Greg on 4/12/2014

    Discovered a single aptasia which had grown decently big. Luckily this seems to have taken care of it nicely before the little bugger spread!
  • Good Product By Alex on 4/7/2014

    My tank is only 3 months old and I guess my few pieces of live rock brought in some Aiptasia pests. I searched and read about many different approaches and eventually decided to try Aiptasia-X.
    It seems to work really well, I managed to successfully kill 6 of them.
    My only concern was that despite I had fed my fish, powered off all my returns and wavemakers, some of my silly fish felt the need to taste some of the congealed fluid. So far no ill effects. I also got confirmation from a Red Sea rep during the MAX show in Orange County that once the fluid is congealed it is harmless to fish in the event they decide to nip at it.
