You've got to dip it multiple times to make sure any eggs that might be there are killed shortly after hatching. There's no way to tell if the other montis aren't infected already. To be safe, you must dip all of your montis now.

Well the others can't come out (well extremely hard to take out). Do you know if dettol will work as a good dip? If not what can I use besides Bayer(cannot find it in town anywhere).

Yep. Apparently in the uk its as excepted as Bayer is in the states. Just dipped mine in 0.3ml per lt of tank water for 10min. The nudi fell off after 7min. Brittle star fell off instantly (found a worm of some sort and 2 bristle worms dead) Rinsed with two bowls of tank water and placed back in the DT. It's been 20 min and polyps are open alteady.

If that stuff works you'll have to do it again in a few days, and then a few days after that, to be sure eggs haven't hatched. Keep a close eye on the other colonies. I found taking macro shots with a cheap underwater camera works very well for spotting pests.
