Thanks everyone, glad to be back.

Xtal reef says "The other ones, the red ones, can reach plague proportions as they reproduce rapidly and smother corals." this is what I have and am fighting. I dosed eXit again tonight. we'll see....

As for the back glass - haha, I always get that. If you look closely you can see the areas I can't get to. Here are my secret weapons:

I had a small infestation of planaria. I always kept the popluation down by siphoning them out at water changes. When I finally decided to treat them, I used 1/2 a bottle of Flatworm eXit. In less than 5 mins they were all dead and floating in the water. I grabbed a fine mesh net and started scooping them out since the toxins they release when they die can cause issues. I haven't seen 1 since.

Yeah Larry, that's pretty much what I've been doing. But they keep coming back. From what I can gather, I just let them get too far out of hand initially before doing anything. I don't think the Flatworm eXit kills eggs, only living worms. So I'm guessing that when I dose I'm killing all the worms, but eggs are being left behind allowing them to keep coming back. Eventually Im hopeful I'll get all of them though.

Ray, I still have several of your pieces. The Xenia you gave me, the mushrooms have reproduced nicely, and that huge GSP colony started with that mat you gave me.
