I have numerous Aiptasia anemones in my 75-gal tank housing my octo. A few of them are close to one inch long or larger. Do they pose a threat to my baby bimac or are they a harmless nusiance :?:

Also, in an octopus tank with an excess of floating food about, an aiptasia colony will take off liek nothing else. They always do better in slightly messier tanks, which are octos do create!

So, I'd start trying to get rid of them now before it gets too much worse.
