Should be ok as you only use a little bit. Iíve used pickle juice with success as well:

should be fine. Inject the aiptasia with a small needle and it will die and not crash the tank

You could even inject it with boiling water.

just to make sure it doesnt spread through your tank i would take the rock/frag out of your tank and then try to eliminate the aiptasia
