Aquanites frequently hit in the 150-200s with their normal magic attack and are fairly accurate, even with large magic defences. If the player is using the Protect from Magic prayer, they use a special prayer-negating attack which can hit up to 500+. The special prayer-negating attack is used every 10th attack, beginning with the 9th attack, whether you are using prayer or not. Note, however, that prayer flashing almost completely prevents them from using the protection cancelling attack. The count starts over with every new aquanite so if you can kill them in just a few hits, you may never encounter the prayer-negating attack.  A healing familiar, food and prayer potions may be useful in case mistakes are made. A bunyip is recommended, as well as Swallow Whole scrolls, due to the large amount of food the monster frequently drops.

Caution: Aquanites' special attack deactivates a player's prayers. They only turn them off, however, instead of preventing the player from using them for a while. A player facing this special attack can therefore set Quick Prayers and click them again immediately, or by putting the Prayer Icon (the icon near the Map) in their attack bar. Aquanites' attacks can hit fairly hard and are relatively accurate, but with the use of a healing familiar or similar methods, players may fight for long periods of time. However, it is possible to use protection prayer, since your prayer is only be deactivated for a second, and so gear with high prayer bonus may also be worn. Keep in mind that protection/deflect prayers block only 50% of the damage you receive, so melee armours are not recommended for medium-levelled players who want to 'tank' Aquanites.
