    Hi everyone,

    I have a very small infestation of these bliksems. What would be the best way to remove them?

    Kind regards

    A wrasse. Yellow / Banana Wrasse did the trick in my tank. As a bonus he turned out to be an awesome fish, one of my favourites.

    If the Monti’s aren’t too big you can dip them in coral dip as well, works faster than a wrasse if the infestation is really bad.

    You might need to dip them few minutes longer than recommended. Also had to dip mine 3 times over a week to get rid of all of them.

    Thanks guys, did some extra reading on the subject and looks like they are one of the worst pests to deal with. Going with the dip and some manual removing etc.
