Move the coral farther away from the rock.

Yes, I thought of a FW dip, but I'm concerned that would damage other life in and on the rock. Perhaps injecting only the hole he is in with freshwater would work?? Agree... if someone has gone thru this, any tips would be appreciated.

Hara, When this worm first started eating some zoos and mushrooms, I did move all of those corals away from that particular location. It took about two weeks, but he found a different zoo colony. This particular colony has spread since I first introduced it, and is "permanently" attached to the rock. I can't get it off. Besides, so far this thing has outsmarted my traps and coral movement. He'll just find another snack in a couple of weeks.

move the coral farther away from the rocks that the worm hangs out in. This will help in two ways, first, the worm may not care to travel too far from the rock to forage, second, if it does, you have a better chance of catching it before it makes it back to the rock.

Hara you missed this part... he can no longer move the corals...
your in a tough spot. Not sure of any chemicals you can use to nuke the bugger!! I feel your pain I lost all my zoos to some unknown vermit or disease.
Keep baiting the trap near where you think he lives. Pick a night and stay up late with a red light to view the tank and find out where its living and then yank the lr.. You may have to start yanking rock and dipping in FW and just kill everything in and on the rock in hopes of killing that SOB. I know it will be hard to do but if you want to save your zoos you may have no other choice. With that much LR don't worry about bacteria and pods..
I just had to frag up my hugh Galaxia becasue of brown jelly infection.. It hurt to do it but I had too..
