    Hi

    I discovered nudis on my Daisy Polyps and Im not sure whether to bother removing them or not, or even dip it in Coral RX. They are the same colour as the polyps, and the polyps does not seem to mind much, since they remain open even though the nudis crawl up them. My problem is whether or not the nudis will spread to other corals ( I have various zoas, button polyps, palys etc. in my tank) and harm them. Could this nudis only be limited to the Daisies? I discovered quite a few.

    See picture below.

    Rather dip the colony while the nudis are still localized. You may not be seeing any damage now because there only a few nudis, but once they multiply they MIGHT cauce havoc in your tank.

    Thanks for the replies.. I was just wondering if there were any mutual relationship between the daisies and the nudis since they seem localised to it, and didnt want to dip without asking first.

    Mandarinman, how would I know if I have salifert flatworm? Any negative effect if I treat my tank with flatworm eXit as a precaution?
