Not off the top of my head. You could try an iodine/lugols dip.

Ahh..the build is kind of stalled at the moment. Tank is doing better though. in the winter I am mostly laid off so I can take better care of the system.

I don't have iodine or lugols- could pick some up next weekend. Unless iodine is available locally - would CVS have it or do I need a special kind??

Should I try a fresh water ro dip instead?

Fresh water isn't going to kill off infections. It will just get off loose hitch hikers. I'm not sure if you want to use the drug store iodine because it's got other things in it besides iodine-
"Decolorized Iodine (Iodides Tincture U.S.P. - Rite Aid brand) $5 for 2 oz, generally used as and antiseptic. Contains alcohol (45%) denatured with ammonia, purified water, Ammonium and Potassium Iodides."

I took the zoas out of the tank to look closely and noticed a zoa on the underside that looked like it may have had eggs or zoa pox on it. Not sure if I should have but I plucked it off. I should def get a dip, but can't do so until next weekend. Is it imperative I get the dip sooner? Any danger putting the zoas back in the tank after I plucked one off?

What are these zoas? Common Indo ones or something you paid 100 bucks for? That should answer the question if you should wait or not.

Split the difference - I paid 50. Will try to make it to the LFS sometime this week.

Update! Haven't dipped yet but the plucking yesterday must have done something good because they are out today - see picture. I'm still going to dip soon and hopefully get these babies fully back up and running.
