I'm pretty sure at this point that my colony of red zoas have "zoa pox." I treated them to a 20 minute furan-2 dip the last three days and will give them a week to recover before trying it again. Has anyone had success with this treatment? I can't search for zoanthid pox on this forum because it ignores the word pox (too short) and I get every post having to do with zoanthids...

[quote=melosu58;944774]I know leathers wage chemical warfare....

Mel, any knowledge of leathers attacking torch, frogspawn, and other LPS? I don't keep any leathers so I haven't researched them much, but my
friend has some LPS dying in a tank w/3 leathers, and I wqas figuring the leathers were the culprit.

I don't have time this morning, but as a very quick answer, yes they can. Sinularia is far worse than Sarcophyton. This is why carbon, water changes, and proper flow are required in mixed reefs.

Yeah...he's got both in there. One Sinularia and 2 Sarcophyton. He's been extremely lax on his water changes (which I harp on to no end, lol), and He's got a canister (another thing I don't really like), and I'm not sure what he's running, as far as media, in the canister.
