    Hello, I just ran out of bleach for decapsulating the brine shrimp eggs and dont have a car? But we have a pool so we have pool chlorine. Could I use pool chlorine or is it still harmful even after washing the eggs thoroughly :confused: ? Any help is muchly appreciated!

    Can you guys tell me if these are Hydroids? If they are...how 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.

    So, after 1 1/2 years including a tank upgrade my rock is infested with hydroids. I have the digitate, colonial, and the kind that look like little trees growing from the rock. My corals are all dying a slow death and my fish are getting stung like crazy. I'm surrendering because between the...

    Greetings, I have a 4.5 month old 25 gallon (long) salt water tank. I am concerned about this fine layer of white/opaque bristles which is currently growing on my LR as well as a few of my hermits. After doing some reading I found that it could possibly be hydroids. Are Hydroids bad for...

    Here is my problem, I have hydroids on a rock I can not remove. I would love to torch them but I can't. I tried AptaisiaX but that didn't work. What else can I try? All serious suggestions will be welcomed. So far the droids are just about a dime sized and I don't want them to get any...
