How do I treat it. Cut away and dip with what?
pic1 & 2 look like a nudi attack.i see in the 3rd pic the coral is dying from the tips,try and give it a dip in iodine.also whats your Ca and Alk levels
I'm tagging on this one, I have noticed on my monti that I have about 4 places that this has started happening over the last couple of days, it's either nudi's or STN, RTN destroys your coral in a few hours.
I do not see any nudis. The 3rd one ease from the base up.
Ok what treatment here please
Mekaeel. CA is 450 and Alk 11.2
on the montis do an iodine dip.but on the acro i would suggest frag and save what you can
similar thing happend when my salt levels were over 43ppt.
imsure yours want be like that!
What is the mix for the Iodine dip
by the way how long have these corals been in your system?
Monti been with me for a couple of months. The birds nest and acro are new. That is where this has started.
You need to look for nudi's at night, an hour or 2 after lights out. If it is a big colony you may see them in day time.
How long has it taken to look like that?
The Monti is 2 days.
Where would the nudis hide? under the coral?
Anyone got formulas for any dips.
You don't see them until you dip. A well known reefer here, compared them to fleas. When they start laying eggs they become terribly destructive. The bigger sexually mature ones can be seen but vast majority are very small
I would guess flow.

Guys thanks for all the advice. I removed the rock and the Monti, took the monti off the LR and that is now in a drum on its own. The Monti I cut the infected part away and I have now got that in a seperate tank. Will see what it looks like tomorrow. The birds nest and Acro are history.
Can anyone indicate where nudis would suddenly appear from if you have never had them before.
shit sorry about your losses.the nudis could have come with the coral or other new corals
Thanks Mekaeel. Shit to loose things like this but lesson learned about where to buy livestock from.
