Red Sea Aiptasia-X is a guaranteed, reef-safe treatment of Aiptasia, offering :
• A unique adhesive material
• Aiptasia does not retract during treatment
• Does not affect water chemistry
• Includes straight & angled applicator tips
Red Sea has developed an exciting, patent-pending, formula to treat the pest anemones Aiptasia sp., Anemonia majano and Boloceroides sp.
Affecting almost every reef aquarium, Aiptasia (otherwise known as glass anemones), are often introduced through live rock or corals and can quickly plague your marine aquaria, destroying corals and other marine livestock with devastating effects.
Existing treatments are often unsuccessful as when threatened Aiptasia quickly retracts into holes in the rock and releases planula (larvae) in the aquarium which can rapidly develop into 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.
Research and development carried out by Red Sea has led to the development of Aiptasia-X, a product which 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 the application of the material easy while it seals 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 for you reef-keeping needs, Aiptasia-X provides a solution you are bound to seek out at one time or another in the life of your aquarium.
The Aiptasia-X kit includes a 60ml bottle of material plus an applicator set consisting of a syringe with two (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.
A 500ml refill is also available and is designed to be decanted in to the 60ml bottle for use with the applicator set.
