Hi,

I just got a few sps frags from a trusted source for about 4 days and i didn't dip with anything when instroducing to my tank. Today i just found something in two frags that terrified me. Please have a look and tell me what you think.

TIA

Thank you Dan, I should not panic like that. There was just a thread right here about treating red bug with interceptor that you also refered the links.

Thanks again

Red bugs are much easier to treat over aefw. Many years back my 180 was infested with them. I had to break down the entire tank. Eggs were found on the underside of many acros.
