Aptasia eating filefish

Does anyone out there have any experience with "aptasia eating" filefish? We have an ugly infestation right now. We even bought a laser, but it doesn't always seem to completely kill them, plus there are so many. Which filefish is the one that is actually eating the aptasia in your tanks. Thanks for any and all input.

Matted filefish or as they are called here green filefish. Make sure u also try to get one that is used to eating frozen goods.

Thanks guys. We have an lfs around here that pretty much keeps them in stock, will give it a try. They are pretty neat looking fish, even if it doesn't eat the aptasia.

I had a bristle? I think it was called and it worked amazing. It ate every single one in the tank. I then ate my GSP. I gave it to a friend since it worked for me. It is still traveling tanks in my area. A year and half later none are back. It looked just like the one picture above in a prior post.
