View Full Version : Red bug question

01/29/2008, 07:50 AM
Ok here is what has been going on for a while now. Awhile back I found red bugs on one and only one of my sps colonies(tri color). So I did the treatments with the interceptor and they go away for a while but always come back, but only on that coral. I have had to trim back the coral quite a bit. I have never seen them on my other corals so I,m wondering if I toss this coral will I rid my tank of these or will they be on the rocks and move on to another colonie?

You might want to consider getting one or two (a pair) of dragon pipefish, as they supposedly do well against the red bugs. They're easy to keep if you have a decent/normal pod population. I don't believe they have swim bladders as they slither around the rocks and sand. Very outgoing in personality, bold, always in sight. I love mine. I believe any male and female will immediately pair up. Just introduce them together.
