    Can you guys tell me if these are Hydroids? If they do I handle this. I've read a hydrogen peroxide and then an iodine dip might work. The zoas are closed and mad. Right now now only a small piece of a frag plug I have split it affected. I can easily remove it.

    Just curious as to if anyone else does a freshwater dip to new fish before going in the aquarium? For anyone who does not know, it is simply placing a fish in freshwater for 30 seconds up to a minute or 2. This theoretically can cause osmotic shock to any parasites that are on the fish. In...

    I have a nice size colony of zoas on a piece of rock in my tank. The Zoas were always open. Recently (about a week and a half ago) they started closing up and havent really been opening up as much as they use too. I have noticed my hermit crabs are picking at them at night so i was thinking...

    So my crocea clam has been acting up lately, In other threads I posted issues with trumpet corals and hammer corals and we concluded it was due to the addition of a biopellet reactor and GFO reactor too quickly... after removing the GFO and reducing the pellets all came back to normal except the...

    So I had a very nauseating experience over the weekend. Robert and I were traveling and I went into two LFS in the area we were in to look. Because of the schedule I could have gone back just before heading for home to get something if I really wanted it. Of course they had a whole bunch of...

    I've read that you should quarantine everything! After a year of ups and downs, I agree! So how do I medicate (quarantine) a Christmas Tree Worm Coral (Porites)? If one dips corals to kill flatworms and redbugs, then wouldn't Iodine (Lugol's) harm a Christmas Tree worm?

    So the people at a LFS were selling small zoanthid frags for $5.99 plus a free frag. One of the gals there recommended a freshwater dip since they had just gotten many of them in. I've never done that and wanted to get some opinions and/or methods on doing this. Thanks!
