Seems like allot of fun to try!

Trying to remember who, but it seems like someone here did have one. 

I bought one a while back, but then kinda chickened out due to the risk of blinding one of the kids!  Safety first I guess, wear the glasses and the ones that block the proper spectrum!

I have one, they do work, but it depends on the severity of how many you have, how easy they are to laser (repeatedly), and if there are other methods.

 

IMO, aptasia are easy to kill, majanos are not (which is what I originally purchased the laser for). I’ve had luck in the past with 5 peppermint shrimp, less didn’t seem to have effect but 5 was the sweet spot (in a 90 gal tank at the time). 

 

I always tell people that if you have the option to remove the piece with them on it and use a torch or razor blade them off and clean area with hydrogen peroxide, you will likely have better results.

 

Id let you borrow it but I’m in Camas...I prefer local loaners LOL

Precautions: don’t torch around other corals, especially zoas (read on palytoxin).

 

It doesn’t take a lot to kill them, likely a quick second or two of flames. Interesting idea I’ve never tried would be to put an ice cube on them quickly after you torch them. Most living organisms can not survive rapid temperature changes like that (it’s a sterilization method)...just an idea, haven’t tried it yet. The torch itself will do the job though!
