    There are many hitchhikers we can unintentionally introduce into our aquariums that have the potential of wreaking havoc on our livestock: Acropora-eating flatworms, red bugs, Montipora-eating nudibranchs, Pyramid Snails, Isopods, et al. A recent study has found that some flatworms don't harm corals by eating them but by robbing them of zooplankton.

    Very true, and I am tired (more so fed up) of loosing stuff. Will have to get the Dips from Sims this week
