A Peppermint shrimp will take care of them if they're small. Not much will eat big ones. I had 25 - 30 in my 72G and two Peppermint shrimp wiped them out in about 3 weeks.

Just throw a Raccoon in there and say to hell with the polyps and mushrooms.. Those are an easy fix. If you don't fix the aiptasia problem that will be a bigger problem.

Hmmmm

Peppermint shrimps tend to eat Aiptasia, but never heard of them eating Majano Anemonia ... I don't think the peppermint shrimp will touch those.

Sure you have your info right about the peppermints eating them?

Looking into the Copperband Butterflyfish...Caution in reef tank.But at the present time all i have is 3 different polyps and 1 mushroom..And about 300 of them Majano and 1 other kind..Just wondering how long this will take? To clean them up...And which will be the fastest and best result.

There is also a product called joesolution or something like that... I've heard this works really well, I've never tried it but who knows. I would say the fastest would be a big raccoon butterfly. Long be hold I saw a big ass one at Saltwater City today selling for like 39.99. You could then trade it back in and get 1/3 credit. or pass it along to someone else that has a problem :)

Difficult to tell from the picture but I believe you are correct they are Majano. Peppermint shrimp will not eat them. Some butterflyfish will as well as some of the large angelfish (Pomacanthus). I have a Blue Face that wiped out 10 or so of them when it matured.

HTH,

That does not appear to be similar to the Majano Anemonia that I am aware and that is found in the FAQ. That one seems to have more of a disk structure where the Majano seems to have more tenticles similar to a long tentacled anemone. Either way, a peppermint will not take care of those. You will need some sort of fish that will eat them or a syringe and a lot of time to erradicate them with kalk.
