    I've found some clonial hydroids in my tank :nono:

    Was given great advice by Wee-Man and Warr on how to get rid of them, but it requires removing the LR from the tank.

    Problem is the hydroids are on my base rock (bottom pieces of my aquascape) - so i've got to dismantle the whole tank if I want to remove them...

    Are there any ways I can try get rid of them without dismantling my entire setup!?
