    I need some urgent help.
    I bought 2 live rocks with Zoas that has just been imported. The Zoas have been out of water for the trip, therefore caused the Zoas to be in a bad shape and need time to recover.
    Now, my lawnmower blenny is having a feast between the zoas and in the process braking them.
    I have just covered the zoas with net as a temporarily measure. What do you recommend and what is your experience in this regard? Your help would be highly appreciated.

    Put them in the sump for a couple days and see how they are doing.

    Better option is the sump than the net bud .... why are you buying Live Rock on YOUR birthday - shouldn't it have been bought for you?

    Thanks Chikaboo. Bought the rock about a week ago. My sump's lighting is not so good. Will use container with net.

    i think those zoas will need the best possible conditions they can get right now, flow and light so I would be inclined to leave them in the tank and sump the hermites a while....
