Aiptasia, Majano Anemones And Joes Juice

Joes JuiceWhen your aquarium is running no doubt like I did you will stare into the aquarium for hours peering into the water in the hope of seeing something new growing out of the rock.

You will see all sorts of things growing, however there are some things in the aquarium, which although alive are more a pest than a welcome addition.

What I am talking about here is the dreaded [tag-tec]Aiptasia[/tag-tec] and the [tag-tec]Majano anemone[/tag-tec].

Quite a few people (as i did) see the first one and think to themselves “that looks nice – I’ve got an anemone” but before long you wish you had never seen them.

You start out with a few and before long you will have a tank full of them!

This is why they are a pest. They multiply that quickly that they end up everywhere.

There are numerous ways to control them. You can use shrimps in the form of peppermint shrimps, fish in the form of the copperband butterfly (I would not recommend this option as they are very hard to keep due to their feeding habits), manual control by injections and last but definately not least…..

Joes Juice is a great product. I found it a few years ago when I was having some issues. I had tried various methods but no matter what I tried I could not get rid of them.

So what it do?

Simple really, all you do is open the bottle, suck up some of the mixture with the supplied syringe, gently squirt it onto the centre of the Aiptasia/Majano and watch it retract and disintegrate before your very eyes.

I probably sound a bit harsh here but it is actually quite satisfying.

Of course you may not be able to get all of them as you have to be able to reach them, therefore if they are out of reach or out of sight then they will remain. You will, however be able to get all the ones you can see.

The good thing about this product is that it is exceptionally easy to use and is not harmful to any of the other life in the aquarium. I have used it many times now and have had no ill effects whatsoever.

At this moment in time I have no Aiptasia or Majano anemones in my aquarium (that I can see anyway) but standing in my aquarium cupboard is a bottle of Joes Juice just waiting to be used when I spot another one.

This is a great product to use if you have problems and also to have in your war chest to stop any problems as they arise.

I really cannot recommend it enough.

If you want to read more information about Joes Juice then make sure you check out their web site which can be located at:

  1. I have continuing skirmishes with these little horrors. I use Joe’s Juice and it works well. Targeting is important (watch out for close to required growths), circulation pumps nust be turned off. Peter’s right, though, it is good.
    Just a thought – – Peter and I do not have any connection with Joe’s Juice, we don’t make it at home either! 🙂

  2. I have a purple moon brain and it is covered with worms that seem to be killing it slowly. What are these worms called and hoe do I get rid of them. How would I save my brain.



  3. Hi Elizabeth.
    Straight away I’ll say “I don’t know” on the information available. Helpful eh?

    Identifying “worms” is difficult at the best of times, unless they are common in an aquarium.
    What we need is a photo if possible.
    The forum on this site has an area for question such as yours, and has an upload facilty for photos.
    Even so, they may not be immediately identifiable.
    If you prefer, a knowledgeable aquarist friend, or a good dealer who can see the item in the flesh, may be a good option.

    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put
    this short article together. I once again find myself
    personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and posting comments.

  13. I’m glad that the article proved to be helpful. I have had a battle in the past with the anemones and have to keep an eye out for them. The Joe’s Juice is kept handy of course. The anemones never seem to be fully clear, they continue to pop up over periods of time. The numbers are very much reduced thank goodness.

    the little changes that make the most important changes.
