    Hi guys I got these things in my tank from a live rock about 2 months ago, I don't know what it is but it already multiplied from 2 to 3 and they have wedged themselves in between my zoas uploadfromtaptalk1425050263797.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1425050295989.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1425050326580.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1425050389063.jpg

    I think its safer that way so you don't harm your pretty zoas by getting juice or paste on them

    just inject it in the tank.
    If you take it out then it will close and you won't be able to inject it.

    You will have to be careful with your zoas...

    just remember, the trick with injection is to do it very very slowly.

    The vinegar, being of a much lower PH, dissolves the tissue of the mojano or aiptasia. So the slower you do it, the more vinegar can actually react with the pests, before being swept away by your currents. Also explains why its better to switch off your flow pumps. And why its better to do it rather in a bucket.

    Slowly... Take your time. Enjoy the white grey slime as the pests dissolves, dying slowly. Remeber the foot area. Actually start there if you can.
