    My suggestion would be feed all the livestock in your tank the green marine algae / noori which has been treated with garlic. Most LFS sell it. Make sure it has garlic in it. Should say so on the packaging :)

    Just keep feeding as long as they are eating. My point is try and get them to eat as much as possible and the white spot should dissapear in a few days :thumbup:

    I am giving this advice because when I first bought my Regal it also developed white spot pretty bad. By almost overfeeding with the garlic it cleared up in a couple of days. It is all about getting their immune system up. The garlic provides the Vitamin C and other healing properties to allow the fish to fight the parasite without treating the water with medicines. This again is my opinion :whistling:

    Use your ninja skills combined with Bruce Lee reflexes and catch with your hands
    :tt2::tt2::tt2:

    Okay but seriously now try get him into the short side of tank and bring the net up from the bottom. I find it easier that way. And obviously use a big net

    I am completely sold on Microbelift's Herbtana. Note that some people report that it effect snails, but I find that it is only a temporary snail issue.

    Remember to turn your skimmer of when you use it.

    Microbe-Lift.com :: Herbtana (Reef)

    Good luck

    I bought my Herbtana from Jungle Aquatics.

    Why not just phone them and ask if they have stock?
