None inferred. That is why there was a smily that was winking ;-). The
are a pain my my tank as well and I can't control them or import the natural
control agents (slug predators or the shrimp). The calcium hydroxide
solution worked OK, but I can never get them all and a few months down the
line I am dealing with another outbreak. I can't reach into some places in
the refugia and the last time they wer thriving in the power filter, dispite
the protein skimmer bubbles swirling around with them...

The only means I have had for really dealing with them is to majorly
drop the salinity or Calcium hypochlorite, but that kills everything

That came out a little more severe than I meant for it too, bad day today. I
went collecting over the weekend and caused myself some severe pain and I
it out in my post. Please excuse me for it (but aiptasia are still a sever
pest in reef tanks)
