Segregating a fish

I have a small aptasia problem that I'd like to get on top of before it becomes a big problem.

 

I also have a frog fish, which makes peppermint shrimp difficult.

 

Can I keep the fish in a breeder box in the tank for a few weeks while the shrimp do their job without stressing him out too much?

Maybe the sump? With a few pieces of rock?

Just get lots of shrimp :laugh: He will get full after a while..........

I have a similar problem with my fu-Manchu lion fish. I added ten peppermints thinking they would be in there long enough to take care of the few aiptasia I had. He ate them all in less than a day. Had whiskers all stickin out his mouth. So, I bought a blue laser on eBay. Zap!

Jeff at c&c might have tracked down some berghia nudis for me. You might want to check with him and see if he can get you some too.

I've considered getting berghia nudis but I'm worried they would just be an expensive snack for my wrasses. I picked up a cheap 1w blue laser on eBay and it does a pretty good job. Not so much on the larger aiptasia but it will cook the smaller ones. Let us know how those berghia work out for you.
