Hi,
I've found this strange hitchhiker near my zoanthid. Any Id? 332672
sorry for the low detail, I cropped the image to show the coral and to reduce the resolution enough to fit in an attachment. it reminds me of a star polyp but as soon as I took the picture.. IT MOVED. I know corals do that but it reminds me of a sea slug.

I am raging very quietly in my room at the moment xD anyway so how can I stop it? I know you have to dip the coral but idk how to without its toxins being released.

I got rid of mine by siphoning them out one by one. This was usually done in the morning as soon as the lights came on. (much easier to see when the polyps are closed) It was definitely a little tedious, but they're gone now. GL.
