The aptiasia x you are using I have heard from many people just makes the problem worse. If you can get the rock out, burn them off. Failing that I use gro-tech api-x remover its much better.

i can get 4 true peppermint shrimps for £28 i think these would be a good investment i also have one in the tank already , also when waters matured a bit going after a copper band i believe these will also eat it

Pepermints yes, they will do a great job. I would avoid the copperband tbh. They are very hard to get feeding and often die. IMO better left in the ocean.
