    Hi Guys,

    Sorry I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this... Mod's please move it if necessary...

    I have a baby Naso Tang that looks like it may have some worms... How do you deworm a reef? I know how to deworm freshwater, but I'm not sure about Marines...

    Kryo

    P.S. Thanks for the advice Alan, my fish food already contains a substantial amount of Garlic, mainly because of my Powder Blue that loves popping out white spots periodically, so maybe it's the Garlic that is "flushing" out his system too??? He was pretty skinny when I got him a few weeks ago and he's starting to fill out nicely now...

    Feeding him and the rest on Omega One Garlic Granules, My DIY frozen fish food with all sorts of yummy goodies including garlic and they all get garlic soaked Nori twice a week...

    yes I may be "over-doing it" on the garlic side but trust me when I say that White Spot don't like the stuff!
