Re:Aiptasia Eating Filefish (acreichthys tomentosus)


Hi Pete, a question about Aiptasia. I’m wondering if I have correctly identified them? :blush: I think so. In our tank they are quite tiny. To get a good view, a magnifying glass helps. They have a translucent clear stem that’s retractable with a milk colored cup top with tiny thread like stubs going all away around. Are they a species on Aiptasia? :huh:

Peppermint Shrimp would be a good addition no matter, but I’m not sure how this shift thing is going to work because our cleaner shrimp work the tank at night vs. day. We have no predators for them to fear, so they will come out at feeding time to take advantage of gabbing a snack and continue grazing close to their cave, but until the lights are out is when they really get to work. 🙂
