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.
It works, but it's a process. By jonathan on 7/23/13jonathan would recommend this product to a friendPeople are always looking for a "cure all" for aiptasia. This stuff works, but it's not the one shot, one kill solution. There is nothing out there that will completely kill these buggers without a little elbow grease.
You have to check the next couple days after initial treatment for smaller aiptasia or pieces of the original aiptasia. Nuke them again. It will work eventually. You just have to keep up with the applications and possibly add a natural predator (peppermint shrimp or nudibranch) to help you with the "baby" anemones.
Lastly, keep on top of your water parameters. This stuff can affect ph, despite what others say. Nothing drastic, but notable.
Overall, it's a great product. It works. You just really have to keep on top of the anemones for a while.

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.
