    I have some pink xenia starting to over grow in the tank.   I would like to keep some but the rest has to go!  What would be the best way to removing them.    I have tried picking them off the rock, but they just grow back.   Is there a better way.

    Cut them off the rock and then take a stiff tooth brush and go to town on the stumps. Always works for me.

    Kalk seems to kill everything but aptasia...[​IMG]
    I even use it on algae.
