  1. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Are these baby or forming sundial snails? If not what are they? They are tiny like a pen ink ball. This is a small chunk of Candy Cane that I was given. I have dipped them in Coral RX.

    I recently had some buttons drawing up and turning white and disappearing just to find out that I had nudibranches and sundial snails. I did a iodine reef dip on several button corals and now some are turning grey and falling apart!:mad: Most of them are ok any suggestions on the others.:help:

    I just found this in my tank the other day. I haven't added anythink to this tank in months, must have come in as a tiny snail. I have seen others. my concern is that it is one of those nasty zoo eating snails, and I just bought $120 worth of blue, red, and pink zoos, and don't want them...

    Purchased a polyp rock from the diver's den from Liveaquaria about a month ago... Since then, my snails are slowly destroying polyps. The rock was about 80% covered,, and now its about 40% covered. Is there any trick to keeping the snails off the rock and eating the polyps? When I see them...

    Seems I spend more time answering questions than asking them - but I DO ask still - it's always a learning process. I'm stumped on this one so maybe somebody can offer enlightenment. I've got a client with a 72-g bowfront. We started maintaining it for him about 3 months ago or so. On the...

    i have always heard of FW dips for those of you who think your zoos or other corals that may be infected by paracites or other unknowns... i have always done a fw dip for new corals before introducing them to my new tank, but i have only done this for 30sec.- 1 or 2 minutes, no longer... someone...

    I have an infestation of sundial snails, and they are starting to eat my zoanthids! Is there anything I can do to eliminate them, or gradually reduce their numbers? I pull out about 10 a day, but most of those are on the glass or visibly crawling on my zoos. I have started to do frequent...
