By "it" are you talking about your zoo colony? Have you recently moved the zoos higher up in the tank? You say they are right under the light? 250W MH over 30 gallons is quite alot.

Sorry, I don't know about the sea slug. Did you do what Fluff suggested in your other thread and see if you could ID it?

The sea slugs could very well be the culprit. And they would seem suspect since you said they are seen on the zoos. They could be munching, or just irritating the zoos. Any way you can remove the slugs for better photos? Or, you could try over at the sea slug forums. http://seaslugforum.net/

I would vaccum them off using a peice of rigid air hose and a 1 gal water jug to catch the water....then dump the water through a net back into your tank.

You could also consider dipping the coral in an iodide solution to rid unwanted slugs and also bacterial infections.

The people at Seachem make a product called Reef Dip expressly for this purpose.

Those are nudi branches and you need to quarantine the zoos. They breed like crazy and the eggs are so small you can't see them. You will need to quarantine and treat the zoos for them or you will lose them all. Just dipping them won't get them all because it won't kill the eggs.
