Marine Depot just released an instructional video showing the proper procedure for the use of the Majano Wand. In principle it’s divine, but is it really? In the video it seems very effective on majano anemones, but how is it on aiptasia? In the video the instructor rolls the end of the wand back and forth for a long 20 seconds until the little nuisance is vaporized. Anyone trying to touch an aiptasia knows the little bugger will suck into the rock before you actually make contact with it. In our experience using the Majano Wand we had a hard time getting to the aiptasia before they sucked in. We finally were able to make contact with one to film this video. It is important to note, the aiptasia we vaporized came back in the exact same spot. I’m going to go out on a limb and speculate the majority of these wands are purchased for aiptasias over majanos. The makers very clearly state that although it may work at times, the intended use of this product is not to kill aiptasia. My suggestion is to keep a few peppermint shrimp which will eradicate your aiptasia problem.
Does any of our readers have experience with the Majano Wand to share?
