Zoa eating nudibranch !

Had some of these hitchhike into my tank ! I dip all my corals in lugols and ro/di but I guess some eggs made it into my display ! I'm manually removing them at the moment but I've read that salifert flatworm exit works well ! Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you deal with it ?

You dip your coral again. Remove any adults you see beforehand from the display as well. Keep an eye on things and dip again later to get any that hatch. Flatworm treatments won't do anything to them to my knowledge.

Are you sure they are the zoa eaters? You should really use something stronger than iodine, like Coral RX.

Lugols isn't like coralRx and is just iodine? Learn something new everyday.

They just fall off when I dip them but some colonies are on huge rocks which would be impossible to remove from the display !

Then you'll just have to pluck them when you see them. Try vacuuming them off of the colonies during water changes too.
