    Found a nudibranch ---- now what?!?

    I noticed my zoas looking a bit pissed off and one small colony slowly disappearing...found one adult nudibranch!!!! That one is no longer...but I am suspecting lots of descendants are in my zoa garden...

    In your guys opinion...what is my best solution here? A fish or a chemical? I cannot really take out those rocks for a fresh water dip since they are at the bottom of the rock structure.

    I did, but I cannot upload it. Looks like I reached my max, even though I just have one picture uploaded. I tried to delete that one, but it won't let me.

    Might snack on a snail or crab but I never had an issue

    You can upload the picture to photo bucket and use a link here. That's what I do to avoid the size limitations.

    Bought a wrasse which has been hiding in the sand for 3 days now while the tang and angel keep a really close eye on him. Great...now I have a dead wrasse in the sand and my zoas are still disappearing...ugh

    No no no. Not uncommon for wrasse to hide for a while. They're shy at first, my melenarus hid for 2 weeks before I saw him out and swimming. Just give him some time

    Try Bayer dip. It will kill the nudis and you can use a magnifying glass to find the egss.

    That's my problem, the zoas are mostly on two base rocks, so unless I move out all the rock and stir up the sand wildly, I can't get it out of the tank. Next I do that will be when I have money for a larger tank.

    Take an airline tube and siphon the ones that you see. The wrasse will catch up with them.
