Hi everyone, I’m  after some help and advice on getting rid of majano anemones. It all started with one that hitchhiked in and I stupidly left it thinking it was possibly a small bubbletip. Now I have hundreds of the bloody things and a lot of hard work ahead.
Has anyone had any experience dealing with them?
What would be the best method to get rid and is there anything that would eat them?
Thanks

Thanks:

You could try Aiptasia X on them? It may have the same effect. The other technique is to inject lemon juice directly into the disc.
There are a couple of fish, Racoon butterfly and Bicolour Angel but no guarantee with them and not sure of their compatibility with your reef tank. Maybe a few peppermint shrimps could possibly eat the small ones.
Sorry fo being vague, only ever had an aiptasia prob before, but all worth a try if they are ruining your fun with this hobby.

Any pictures of the tank? I really like the little pests.
Berghia Nudibranch?

Filefish have been known to munch them too. Plus they are great little characters I picked one up today.

Update: My new filefish has no interest in them whatsoever, so guess it’s down to the individual fish’s character and preferences.
