HELP! Sea Cucumber the criminal????

Well, all of my cladacora is turning white, I've lost a bunch of snails.

The sea cucumber has white lines down his body and is on the move. Did he go nuclear? Should I remove him asap like I think? If so, how?

Just found out that these going nuclear doesn't normally affect snails and hermit crabs.

Ok...I figure, when in doubt, get it out. The cucumber is in his own QT now quickly set up.

I feel like I am talking to myself !

Anyone think some GAC would help? The tang and Lawnmower Blenny appear to be fine, but this cucumber was only the size of a small cheeto. He was a hitchiker when I got my rock.

if they get stressed they relsease a chemical that will kill every thing in the tank. we call it going nuclear becasue they do kill every thing just like the bomb.
