attack of the aeolids

hey guys, I have a 3 month old 30g reef tank which is doing really well. However 1 week ago I noticed the first aeolid nudibranch attacking my coral. I removed him, only to find another one a day later, right on top of my Zoas. It's now been a week and I've eliminated 6 of them. It seems they are somehow proliferating. They pack a powerful sting... it seems its done a little damage to my biggest zoa polyp.

Any recommendations to stop these guys besides tweezers?

Btw..
I posted the first one in the ID forum but it was id'ed as a mojano, when it was a aeolid.

I`ve heard of others using a FW dip on the coral to get rid of them. Good article on them
