I got a few polyps yesterday and noticed two white spots underneath the flesh and am worried they are something bad. These are my first Zoas so really want to keep them alive. I should also mention that yesterday you could hardly see the white spots but now you can easily see them.

Thanks

Here's a picture of the Zoa today I'm worried about.

Possibly new babies? Any flatworms wondering around?

Or could have been pinched by hermits or shrimp.

To my horror I saw my first flatwarm in my Goby's hole!! But I have a Wrasse that would take care of any flatwarms in the open so I don't think that would be an issue. I saw a hermit on top of the colony the day I got the polyps so that could be the issue. Is it odd that it hasn't opened today?

Thanks for the reply,
Ethan

Possibly Zoapox. It comes typically as the seasons change and temps dip.
Check this article out to read about the causes and remedies.

Ok thanks!

But I think whatever it is is taking over the Zoas and I don't think I will be able to bring them back.

Many people that had the zoapox felt exactly the same way.
Until they dosed the Furan-2. The comeback is pretty quick.
It's up to you, but can you post more pics?

I would consider doing the Furan-2 in a container outside of your reef.
Or, you can dose the tank.
The article gives you the procedure.
