Send me some !! The best thing is to give them to friends if you can and not kill unless absolutely neccesary. Just my opinion.

i'm guessing i have the same green palys. they are extremely invasive and smother out other palys and zoas. removing with tweezers/scalpel after the lights go out works for me.

I will try that but by leaving anything behind will it not just grow back cause I tried to kill them with aptasia x and I thought I got them just for them to come back

I have battled them for years! I hate them!!!!!!!! I have thrown rocks away to rid them. I setup a new tank 2 years ago thinking they where gone, I just recently noticed they are growing on a few rocks (1-3 polyps popped up) and growing up a candy cane coral....... have no idea how they got in here. one must have survived in a rock and started growing again. I think I am going to try covering them with reef putty to smother them this time.

You could try cutting them as close to the base as you can with some scissors and then smother any remaining tissue with some epoxy. Don't expect to wipe them out the first try though. Some polyps will be extremely easy to cut, with others you may have to wait until an opportunity presents itself to get a clean cut. All that should be left is a little nub.

I have a few rocks in my sump as we speak with some of them that I keep in the dark hopefully they will die
