Yeah, just a bit more expensive than Bayer.

Well, we had a great time in Seattle.  I came back with 5 Zoa's, 3 paly's, 1 Clove polyp, 1 GSP(my husband wanted this, it's going on the glass) and 1 Sympodium.  I dipped everything in the Coral Rx Pro and a bunch of stuff died off, but there is some kind of slug that survived, I think it might be some kind of Nudi, I'm waiting for an ID.  My clove poly is infested with them, there are also some kind of egg casings, I assume they are from the slug.  I've picked off at least 6 slugs and 10 egg casings.  I decided to place everything into a QT just so I could check everything out better.  I'm sure glad that I did!

I just got an ID from someone on RC, they think it's an Arminid Nudibranch, clove polyp eating.  I've been manually removing them and the egg casings.  I'm going to do a freshwater dip tomorrow to try and get rid of any babies!  I don't want these in my tank!!!

what you do is get some bayer and let it sit for 15 minutes then use a turkey baster and blow the crap out of the coral and make sure u get every inch of the coral.

I'll be in town tomorrow and Bayer is on my list.  I'm thinking about cutting it apart as I keep finding egg casings!  I'm just not sure how to do it, can I just pick a spot between the cloves and cut? It doesn't have much rock on the bottom of it.  I don't want to kill it!  I did a freshwater dip yesterday morning and then after the lights when out I saw another Nudibranch and removed it! These are tough little suckers, I'm about ready to Nuke it!!!  I couldn't believe all of the junk that come off of it when I used the turkey baster in the FW dip.

idk if it wasn't to expensive I wouldn't put it in your display at all I would just keep it in quarrintine for awhile and keep dipping and bastering it until you don't see any bugs.

That's the plan, I'm not putting it in there until I'm confident that they are completely eradicated! I just thought that separating it at the places where the polyps are so tight together would allow me to be more successful in killing them all off!

if you have the money I would recommend you using the Zeovit system because it has some awesome coloration and health of corals but it comes at a cost.

I'll have to look that up, I'm not familiar with it!  If I had the money, I'd have a better tank! :)   It's seriously scratched up!

That's for sure! 

So are you thinking about using Zeovit?  I probably won't at this time as I'm trying to acquire some new equipment for my setup and I'm hoping to get a new tank somewhere down the road!

So, are there just different red sea products that you add.  I didn't really know that there were coral programs available.  I thought it was just parameters and good lighting.  Learn something new every day!
