    lol. That is strange, I did FW dips several times, and all of the corals were fine.
    The eggs need to be physically syphoned out dude. I know, it is a real PITA.

    So they only way to fight them would be to do it manualy right....FW dips and to blow the eggs off?....a predator wont do the job??

    Will they only be near/on the monti's or do they walk around in the tank?

    I am also thinking a six-line would be worth a try.

    Sorry to see the destruction the little f*&^%$s have caused already dude. I wish I had an answer for you. All I can say is that I hope I never have to deal with this. I'm currently having stn issues with encrusting montis. I sometimes wonder if montis are more trouble than they're worth?

    i was thinking exactly the same thing...ut montis make my tank look a it fuller at the moment and they grow very fast...thats why i like them so much.

    But if noting works for these nudi's ill have to strave them to death and then add monti's in after 6 months:(:(
