I think if you have Aps the best way is the Copper band as there a stunning fish that will always keep on top of the problem
B Nudi as a second choice ,,never had them but I'm told there very good.Only problem is that once the Aps have gone soon to follow is the Nudi so your have to get more for future out breaks of Aps.
Third would be the peppermint shrimp ,,a lot slower at doing the job.I would say have a few in the system from an early stage of the systems life so they can get on top of any outbreaks before they get a foothold

Take a day in the weekend to take all the rock out and go through each rock and coral with a tooth pick and stick the tooth pick under the foot and flick them off .They unlike the Aps can be removed easily as they don't seen to fasten to the rock like the Aps do.
Its a long job but one you can with time and Patience resolve .
If this is to long a job for you there is another way ,,bin the rock and get new or good second hand rock to replace with.
Don't quote me but I'm sure there is a butterfly that will eat them but I'm not sure what it Will do to other corals .
Good luck m8

I have a copperband and he keeps any in my tank at bay.
I have a few still on rocks where he can't get at, so have had to move a coral to give him some room to work, they'll soon be gone.
I'd opt for a Copperband any day, stunning fish.
