Critter ID Part II

Recommended Posts

I posted a photo of this critter awhile back. I found another one and after dipping all my zoas I found two more dead in the dip. It was suggested these are zoa critters. What do you think?

TIA,

hmm that one looks different from the 1st one. The first one looked interesting because of the white tips it had which make it look like

but I think since you are dipping your zoos and they are falling off its a good bet to say they are the zoo eating kind. Are you zoos disappearing?

I have about 18 different zoas and half are not opening up. Then I saw one of these on the glass. So I started to check out the zoa forums and others had suffered the same problems I have. Dipping was strongly suggested. Needless to say I will now dip all coral no matter where they come from.

Dipping is not enough as it will not kill the eggs. You will need to be extremely diligent about looking for and removing eggs. I battled Montipora Eating Nudibranchs with success by removing any eggs I could find and buying a larger Wrasse. I got an Ornate and after that no more Nudis.
