A peppermint shrimp will do some damage to Aiptasia as well as a copper band butterfly. Copperbands are not 100% reef safe but that depends on each individual specimen. However, please only get one if you love this fish as they need a reasonable amount of care and attention to thrive. They are fairly shy fish so not great with aggressive tankmates :)

Each specimen is different, but typically a CBB will help you control aiptasia. Getting them to feed generally is tough. But once settled they should help resolve.

Note there are other solutions. Aptasia X or even lemon juice squirted at the Aiptasia.

Good luck.
