worm trouble

Hi All,
I had a healthy coral that began to show signs of stress a couple of days ago, this morning I saw alot of white. I pulled the coral, fragged off some healthy branches and when breaking the base off the rubble I found this worm. I would appreciate an ID and advice on how to eliminate this from my tank.
Thanks in advance.

About 2 weeks later I noticed them on a couple of corals. I used dr g's coral dip and the only thing I lost was some snails and some hermits. Other than that I didn't lose any corals sps or lps. So now I dip everything I buy from stores or people in dr g's.

I wish it got rid of nuisance algae also.

What dosage are people having success with using Dr. Gs coral dip on in tank treatment when treating for red bugs?

I have read "1 cap full per 20 gallons" and that a "8 oz bottle treats 265 gallons". Was hoping to get some more input before I do this...

Thanks

I put an entire bottle in a 120 display, 40 fuge, and 40 sump. I would guess about 150 gl total water volume. It eliminated all the redbugs for me. Did nothing to a handful of red planaria I had in my fuge though...

Need some help! Was gluing some frags that were on my frag rack pulled a stag off the rack and the back was gone. Upon inspection the skin of the Acro was gone and and there was about an 1/8 inch gap were it almost looks like it died then started to grow again. also found on the dead part what looks like gold eggs in small bunches and a few black dots. sorry don't have a good camara that takes close up pic's.

What was the treatment protocol? Did you dump the whole bottle and then just left it? Did you do any water change?

Livestock okay dealing with it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I've done two in tank treatments with Dr G's Coral Dip to treat for red bugs. I did not do any water changes after treatment, but I did run carbon to help remove the medication. No long term issues with my system using this treatment other than total annihilation of my red bug problem.

I had to work the first treatment so I ended up running it 13 hrs before hooking my skimmer back up and running carbon. I ran it 6 hrs the second time.
