    Default What the heck?!

    Can anyone identify these attached to the zoas? Look like little feather duster worms but I am not sure if they will attach like this?

    Hard to tell, by the pic......but doesnt look good!

    Got some iodine, or any other coral dip handy? I would do a dip, and see what that critter is. Hate to have it be a nudi! Just to be on the safe side.

    do a tankwater dip (not freshwater, plus either of those 2 dips, in a white container, and take a pic of the critter that comes off. I am curious as to what it is. I am guessing nudi, but have seen somthing similar in the past.

    It spread to a few other frags all palys or large zoas. I did the dip but no critter came off with it. I will likely do it again soon and see if I can catch it. I really need to dip all my zoas because a good portion of them are not happy. I did just get the mg to the correct level though.

    Funny about the wrasses, I hope they work also but it is 3 8 line flasher wrasses. Should be here tomorrow. I have a cleaner as well but he has been here the whole time?

    What are those? the eggs of a nudi? It looks just like the stuff that come on a montipora. Where the skin had receded there were a group of these on the skeleton. I just thought they were little dusters. Looking closer it appears to be fuzzy looking on stems but no feathers. I have pulled them off a few times and dipped and they always came back? I will also try and get better pics.

    looks like zoa hydroids to me unfortunately the only way to get rid of them is to pick them off and the webbing between them too

    I wondered about hydroids. I am sure they are not good but they arent really effecting the zoas. Guess I will kep pulling them.

    also one wrasse died before it got here and the others were not eating so it looks like next order on those. Switched to some tank raised Kuda Seahorses instead I wanted both so neither here nor there but I hate to hear of fish dying.

    Will do. I did find a nudi yesterday though too. I got a pic and will add that before linking it over at Bobs. I kept it in a cup overnight hoping it might be a berghia lol. It was dead today though. I also found a massive colony of the other things on a normally hidden part of a frag shelf.
