Problem was a few weeks later reefers would see hundreds of new ones.

It was a great way to turn 5 nems into 100 nems inside 2 weeks IME.

What about carbon dosing? If you have biological filtration and a skimmer, you could carbon dose to cut costs and eleminate your need for water changes. You would just have to replace whatever elements the aiptasia needed for growth back into the water.

HTH

Agree with carbon dosing + skimmer. Might also consider a remote DSB with sterile materials.

I had 5 or so Aiptasia I hit with one round of Aiptasia X. For a week, looked GREAT. On the 6th day, hundreds of the little buggers. I'll never not have a copperband butterfly in my tank again.

I thought about a fuge for your system, but would be tough to sterilize before introduction.
