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.
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.
