i hope they aren't an SPS eating bug...

i saw them when i got home...and went to find some tweezers to try and pick them off, and by the time i came back they were gone/moved...can't see them on any of my other SPS...YET! :D
anyone want coral safe, aiptasia eating nudibranc's (berghia) from one of the UK's only breeders? PM me for details

That look flatworm'y, but guess the only way to be sure is to try and get them out. Next time you see them, get a pippette and suck them out for a closer look, alternatively, take out the colony dip it and look at the results.

yeh i thought flatworms...wierd thing is i've never seen them before...and nothing new has gone in since i can remember...except some zoa frags from amwell, so perhaps they came in on those?

what dip do you reccomend mate? and is it literally just a case of dipping the coral in a container of dip and taking it straight out again? or do you leave it in for a while

thanks
