    6 month hurdle from hell

    On top of my tank being infected with velvet and losing most of my fish I now have zoa eating nudibrachs. Anything I can do to wipe out the nudis?

    You could try some wrasses like six line, or yellow corris if you think they'll survive. How many zoas and are they on plugs? Do you have a qt tank?

    I have a leopard wrasse that's seemingly unaffected by the velvet. I tried to qt some montis after finding montipora eating nudis. Dipped in Bayer, scrubbed with a toothbrush and eggs still survived and wiped out the qt. I'm not going to do that again, it was a huge waste of time.

    What a bummer bro. I would recommend 3 or 4 6 lines. Awesome hardy pest control and they should be fine if introduced at the same time. Throw in a mela to help them out

    I don't want to risk anymore livestock with velvet being present in the tank. Guess they'll eat themselves out of food eventually.
