Do all acropora coral carry red bugs? I have recently read that red bug is commonly found on acropora and I wasn't sure if it meant that all acropora carry red bugs or that most red bugs are found on acropora.:confused:
FYI, I got a new acro yesterday (ORA purple acro with green polyps) and I dipped for 8 minutes in about 1.2 gallons using the coral RX 1 shot. It's one little tube you break open and dump in. I put it in a bucket with a power head and then shook it out in dip. Then rinsed in clean tank water...
I turned over my live rock recently and found a small red bug about a CM long. Ive attached a photo and was looking to gain from communal wisdom as to any threats these bugs may pose to my tank. no corals just 2 percula clowns, their eggs and an assortment of snails and crabs.
OK so I had to retire my first sps today. I took it into the sun to bleach it and I noticed there was about 20 orange spots all over the coral :bigeek:
So please let me know if these look familiar and if they could cause a bigger problem in my tank. I have a couple of other sps in there.
