Good luck..
Wait a minute, I thought eXit did NOT kill pods. I thought the whole point was that it kills nothing but the worms? I hate to drive this thread into the ground, but does anyone know if that's the case? With a mandarin, I can't afford to kill pods.

I treated my tank just recently and I still have pods. I treated it like 3 or 4 times in about a week. I wanted to make sure they were gone. I still see one or two occationally on my candy cane coral but I just suck them up with a turkey baster. However I did notice a decrease in my pod population. I do have a leopard wrasse though. He could have just been chowing down on my pods too. I didn't really notice how the population was before I did the eXit. I just remember from before I put my wrasse in. Is it possible that it kills some of them? Sure, but from my recent experience, it doesnt kill them all. HTH

velvet nudibranch eats these things - and ONLY these things, so if you don't have them, you can't keep one. They also only live for about six months best case, so I would go this route before I put poison in my tank, but that is just me.

I have been looking for one of these for a few months- it seems you can find them mail order but not arround here in my LFS. I have the SAME things in my nano and they are a pain in the A%^. It seems I can't ever get all of them out of there no matter how many times I siphon and pull live rock chunks out and rinse.

Also, mandrins and six line wrasse will eat them, but not ALL the time, it is a hit-or-miss thing I have been told. velvet nudibranch are the only thing out there that will ONLY eat them and leave your tank alone.

Good luck
