Ugh, do you see what I see?





These are on several of my acros, including the ones with no purple on them. Anyone know the latest word? Good articles?

Ugh, Kevin - no fun!

Here's a *snake oil* (magic cure, maybe?) that seems to be working for some sps folks...

>>Bio Coral / Coralline Amino Acid by Salifert (Marine Depot link)<<

And a couple lengthy threads for ya ...

>>Bio-Coral Results<< ~ RC

>>Red Bug Success<< ~ RC

Here's a good article by Greg Hiller: >>AN AQUARIST'S EXPERIENCES WITH A SPECIES OF ACROPORA PARASITES<< ~ Advanced Aquarist Online magazine.

And a huge thread sharing experiences...

>>Red bugs on your sps? Share your exp.<< ~RC

Keep us posted!

Thanks Teri, I'm pretty upset, I'm gonna try the snake oil, figure it won't hurt anything one way or the other, and if I can't get rid of them....well, I guess I'll be looking for more frags in the spring

I haven't had any luck eliminating them yet, but I have gotten them under control (hopefully ). I dipped what frags and colonies I could in seachem reefdip (approx. 4 times the normal dose) for 10-15 minutes and increased overall water motion in the tank. Their numbers have dwindled, and the colonies don't appear to be worse for wear; all are exhibiting good color and polyp extension and great growth rates. I remember the sinking feeling I had when I first discovered them, and I would definitely prefer not to have them. I don't think they are the end of the world though Good luck!
