Getting pests like Aiptasia has nothing to do with your water chemistry, their their there, they will reproduce until you kill them all off somehow.

But on that note, that doesn't look like Aiptasia.

Google Hydroid Jellyfish, then go to images.

I used to love squishing them with my magflot when I had them at the beginning of the tank. They go away as the tank's nutrient decreases (that's what I have been told).
