Red Sea Aiptasia-X 2oz (60mL) Information



Red Sea Aiptasia-X

In an exciting development for reef-keepers Red Sea has developed a unique 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 via live rock or corals and can quickly reach plague proportions in marine aquaria, destroying corals and other marine livestock with devastating effect.

Existing treatments are often unsuccessful as when threatened Aiptasia quickly retract into holes in the rock and release planula (larvae) in to the aquarium which can rapidly develop in to 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 work 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 both the application of the material easy as well as sealing 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, Aiptasia-X provides a solution long sought-after by almost every reef-keeper at one time or another in the life of their aquarium.

The Aiptasia-X kit includes a 60ml bottle of material plus an applicator set consisting of a syringe with 2 (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 415ml refill is also available and is designed to be decanted in to the 60ml bottle for use with the applicator set.

Great product Product Review by CKitz (Posted on 3/20/14)

Excellent!

Comments: This treatment is great. It is easy to inject the product into the mouth of the Alptasia, without it disapearing quickly into the rock. The adhesive nature of the treatment ensures it stays on the Alptasia, without spreading into the surrounding water. Easy and totally effective. Would recomend it.

Worked Great Product Review by ALLEN MONARCH (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: Aiptasia X worked great. We had quite an infestation and it took care of them. Even the ones that grew up in the existing coral; no permenant damage was done. I would recommend this product to others.

kickin butt Product Review by JOE ROBERTS (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I am very pleased with this product. If you spook the little bugger it will not take in the product, it just makes him mad. If you put the tip just into the tentacles and let it wrap around the syringe as if it is feeding it will take it in and POOF!!! he's gone. Do not drink coffee before this procedure as a steady hand is necessary. I have used this in my 40 gal reef with absolutley no ill effects from corals or fish.

Killed the anemones instantly. Product Review by Nick (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I bought this product because i was beginning to get worried about the number of aiptasia in my tank (15+). The anemones don't even close up when you stick the syringe up close! Then, you squeeze the liquid out and it begins to cover them. It's quite comical really. I just applied the product and now i'm waiting to see the results, though i'm sure it killed them.

Excellent!

Comments: I had quite a infestation of them and dollar for dollar it is the best buy. They claim to have a formula to stop their seed from spreading when treating. It doesn't seem to have as many (little ones)showing up as in the past w/ Joes juice
