Killing Aiptasia with Lemon Juice

If life deals you lemons, why not kill some aiptasia with them. About a month ago, we added an article about Aiptasia Removal Methods. Well, hopefully, you don’t have any left, but just in case, here’s great way to rid yourself of this nuisance anemone. Basically, what’s involved is injecting each aiptasia with lemon juice. The acidic nature of lemon juice will kill the anemone, and prevent it from further reproduction.

Note: Please make sure not to overdose your tank with lemon juice, as it will will drop your tank’s pH, and the dead anemones may add some ammonia to your water. As a safety measure, please watch your pH monitor, and run some carbon (which you should be doing anyways :))
