Aiptasia-X by Red Sea 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 any planula.
