I was wondering if this stuff is contagious and does it affect healthy ones or only those that are semi-open/droopy?

TIA

healthy or not , it can spread from one colony to another.

Aww that sucks than, that means its hard to isolate this stuff than?? If one has it than all of them have it even though there is no sign?

I've had zoos with the pox, that spread to other nearby healthy colonies quickly. The only remedy I had was to completely remove entire infected colonies.

Aww, that sucks, I guess all my zoas are going to get it now. I've been treating the ones I see that have it so I guess just being in the same tank they are all doomed..... Like a never ending treatments.

The minute I see Pox in a frag or colony. I just do 1 MASSIVE dipping party with Furan.

I rather treat the healthy ones too to give them better survivability after the furan treatment.

I have Purple Hornets in my frag tank & they came to me with it. I only treated the PH & nothing else got the pox.
