    the problem is that by the time you realise that its bad it will be too late and half your soft corals eaten

    Where there is one there is two. Watch for them early morning, just before lights on. Many nudi's are not beneficial for your tank. Do you have any wrasse, a banana, and six line will keep those parasites away.

    That is a zoa eating nudi. The moment you touch them all the fuzzy wuzzies on their back disintergrate. It is better to syphon them out if you find them. The fuzzy wuzzies apparently reproduce. If you have disintergrated one into a powerhead i would suggest going to perkys they have flatworm medicine in their cabinet. Dose one dose today and one in a weeks time as a precaution. Ps this is from experience.
