    Hey!

    Got a problem with Zoas in the tank that seem to be Melting away... It looks to be a fungus that seems to be jumping from colony to colony randomly.

    I am going to buy some iodine to do a dip, but cant seem to finy any posts on similar problems.

    Anybody had a similar experience that ended well?

    Thanks, Mike.

    Best is to cut away the fungus parts like fragging it and also try the dip...

    also the spreading from colony to colony is concerning me...

    Seams to be something in your water column so cutting the fungus part away wont help much...

    Think we need some expert advice here...

    zoa pox. caus by temp spike and to much light to fast. get it in a shadow light with nice flow. what works for me is to brush of the pimpels with a tooth brush and dry them out of the tank. use gloves and glasses.

    Just a thought:

    but why do you use that large gravel substrate instead of a marine type substrate?
