If you don't have any of this just laying around I used something we all have and it worked everytime. Get a straw or air tube or something so you can target the aiptasia. Then take a pinch of your salt and drop it down so that it lands right on it. It shrinks them up and a day or 2 later its gone.

I've had two Copperbanded Butterflys the first wasn't interested in aiptasia but the second loved them! We had great success with that.

Do you have to dilute the rooto before using it? Read the info but maybe missed the mix ratio... What is the ratio of rooto to water? Thanks

Mix 1/3 cup Rooto (80 grams) to one liter RODI or Tap water. The lye releases heat, so be careful. Of course, use extreme caution regarding hands and contacting the dry Rooto or the rooto/water mix.

Since I just used it tonite to kill off some stupid green palys that I put in my tank about a year ago for some stupid "blank" no good reason, I thought it would be a great "bump" for some members that have not seen this...I use 2 teaspoons with 125 ml of water.

I recently tried this method. Got the lye at Ace who could only sell me a case. Guess I will have to make some soap too. I mixed a 2x batch and killed the nems. Quicly turned into translucent grey goo. It even killed some spots of bubble algae and clove polyps. Great stuff!

Hopefully your Ace has it in stock. I had to have it delivered to the store. Took 3 or 4 days. The manager explained that they dont keep it on the shelf as individual bottles due to federal regulations similar to how they regulate pseudophedrine now. Apparently it was a pain for them getting customers to sign for it and a bunch of really shady people kept asking for it. Didnt have any issues ordering me some though.

I had great success in the past with peppermint shrimp myself until I had wrasses that like to snack on them.

My point was how can you declare something "The best method" if u haven't even tried the alternatives.


I've seen only one majano in five years. I am currently using it for green palys that I was stupid enough to put in my tank. I've used it for some other invasive stuff too.

Point taken, and I agree 100%. I had a mystery wrasse that gobbled down three of the first five I bought before the hit the sand. That's the reason I moved on to chemical warfare. I actually have one peppermint in my DT still, but haven't seen any aptasia for quit sometime.
