Hi,

I have recently acquired my first corals. One one of my Zoas there appears to be a lesion and what I think may be a Zoa eating nudibranch. Picture isn't great but the nudi is very small. Can anyone confirm? If so, I guess I should remove and perform another dip in Coral Rx?

Thanks,

Dave

Look like algae or hydroid.
Remove zoa from tank and scrape the thing side ways from it.
Be very careful not to poke the zoa. I guess you could use some fine tweezers too.
Better remove then in doubt.

Hi Grandis,

Thanks for the response.Glad to hear that it isn't a nudi. Will use some tweezers to remove it just in case!

I have found some new discoveries in the tank. I think one is some sort of sea slug and the other a sponge. Can someone confirm? The sea slug thing should I remove? It is found near my orange riccordia mushrooms.

Thanks again,

Dave

The pink thing look like a sponge or a hydroid. just keep an eye to see if it takes over or stings anything good that you have. I wouldn't mind for now.
The slit probably eats algae. I would just leave it alone.

Thanks again. I am actually pretty happy about the Sea Hare as I love all those macro critters unless they harm my tank.
