14 oz (415ml) refill for the Red Sea Aiptasia-X Aiptasia Eliminator Kit.
Eliminate Aiptasia with Aiptasia-X
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.
This 415ml refill is designed to be decanted in to the 60ml bottle for use with the applicator set.
