    i can see them on the glass, also on some calcarious alge, u know, that pinc stuf that grows on the LR. i also was advised that it could be the reason why i can't keep zoanthoids for long

    yes, i know. i promase, as soon as i get hold of a digital camera, i don't think my phone will have a good enough pic quality to even be able to see the nudi branch.

    i'll c what i can do with the phone just to wet your apetite a bit tho.

    back to the subject at hand. any other ways to eradicate them little &%)@'s?

    By the way you describing them to be crawling on the rocks and glass it certainly isnt nudi's. Sounds more like pods (which is good).
    But pics will help.

    Well if you having problems with your Zoas,there are Nudi's probably present, do an Iodine dip.

    sory guys, i just can't focus on things that small with mu phone. i know ... i should get with it and buy a camera. just never realy needed 1 i guess

    i realy hope they are pods, but then my fish would be eating them. also, they dnt realy crawl around, its more a slug, no legs. just slide around.

    If you have on your Zoas you probably won't see them.

    iodine dip? that would be a huge task mek. perhaps just the zoo's, but what about the rest of the tank, how would i stop them going back onto the zoo's

    yes thalion, i dnt c them on the zoas. but the zoas just stop opening and kinda become less and less. same problem wth barly polops. i think zoas and polops are fantastic and make a tank look so much better

    just went to that site Thalion, there are like hundreds of pics, beautiful actualy. what i have is not nearly as spectacular. mine are just a plain brown, in fact the xact same culour as another pest, aptasia.

    quite frustrating , i will do my best to get hold of a camera, shouldn't be too hard
