Awesome product By Nate on 3/6/14Nate would recommend this product to a friendI tried this out today and it seems to have done the job. I only had 2 aptashias growing in my tank and they seem to be gone!!. Follow the directions and you will see it work in action. I am also doing an experiment on this product on button polyps; I have a lot that I wanna get rid of. Only did one polyp to see what will happen. Ill write another review, letting you know the results.
Works! By Bob on 3/4/14Bob would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff is great. Kills the pest without harming anything around it.
Great results! By TremontReefer on 2/9/14TremontReefer would recommend this product to a friendWas skeptical ordering this but it worked great! Whenapproaching the aptaisia the mouth stayed open exactly like the product said. It enjested the product and no issues since. Every once in a whole I get somd hitchhiker aptasia. I will always keep this product on hand.
Quick and Easy By Joe on 1/16/14Joe would recommend this product to a friendI was surprised how well this stuff worked. After one treatment (which takes seconds), it had washed away down my overflow the next time I checked my aquarium, and over a month later, they haven't come back. Get a peppermint shrimp if you have an outbreak, but for targeting a few pests on a new piece of rock, this works like a charm.
this stuff works great but… By turbotone on MR on 1/13/14turbotone on MR would recommend this product to a friendlike the title says this stuff works great just keep in mind what it does…it helps you keep a handle on the problem.. the only way you would be able to eliminate your aptasia problem with this is moving all your rock work and finding every single aptasia in your system! it will eliminate any aptasia you can catch just remember after you catch one remember its location and apply more later on… sometimes theres babies that just grow in there spot… what i will tell you is, it will let you put a grip on the problem.. get in the habit of eliminating them as soon as you see them and get use to dealing with them your whole tank life…. unless you really are prepared to tear down your tank…
Works as advertised By den on 12/16/13den would recommend this product to a friendHad about 6 aiptasia in my 150. Wanted to get a handle on them before they spread. Applied as directed and haven't see them since.
works By Dustin on 12/11/13Dustin would recommend this product to a friendonly product ive got to work on aptasia
Product Works By Keith on 11/21/13Keith would recommend this product to a friendThis product works as stated. Follow directions and you will see the results.
Amazing stuff By Jeff on 11/11/13Jeff would recommend this product to a friendAny aiptasia that pops up this stuff wipes them out. Easy to use and kills them fast.
This is awesome! By Mack on 11/1/13Mack would recommend this product to a friendThis worked as advertised!
Good stuff By Mijfwb on 10/14/13Mijfwb would recommend this product to a friendWorked good right away. I had to go back and retreat areas about 2 weeks later when I noticed a few new ones sprout up in the same spots. I will continue to monitor. I only had two so should be easy. Also make sure you shut all pumps off when you treat, otherwise all the mix gets stirred up off the intended area.
Good... use in combination with natrural solutions By Caz on 7/28/13Caz would recommend this product to a friendOnly used Aiptasia X a few days ago, but was impressed. Product works well and seems to get rid of the pests. I have heard stories of larger outbreaks happening later, so I intended to use this product in combination with some natural solutions. Product works as advertised, but I suspect aiptasia are growing places I can't see and won't notice until later. Overall, I recommend this product, especially if your aiptasia problem is in the early stages.

I'm assuming since its considered reef safe that it wouldn't hurt my bubble tip anemones?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Otto,
It wouldn't hurt your anemones to use it in the same tank but I can't imagine you would want to inject your BTA's with it :-)
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.
