A pic would help. I have never heard of any coral/invert having ick.

I think you posted you have a LTA? Is it possible that it has been stung?

I have a BTA, not LTA. The orange zoos that are touched by my BTA doesn't have any spot (at least i don't see any lol). The other 2 colonies have them. I'll try to post some pics when my 10,000k comes on.

The pics came out really blurry and i can't even tell the spots in the pics...

Anyway, the spots developed into small whitish patches on my zoos' stalks. My zoos are showing weird behavior. The stalks are skinny and some of the polyps wouldn't open or open really lil.

I think my zoos have gotten some kind of fungal infection. Can anyone tell me the FW dip procedure for zoos? Thanks

ICH only will host on fish. I don't know anything about a FW dip for a coral, it seems that might kill it, if not then it might stress it enough that it might not make it....I'm not sure about corals....

I wasn't really saying my zoos have ich... lol I was just saying that to get attention. Plus the spots used to look like ich.

I came across some post in this forum that was talking about FW dip zoos before putting into main tank to remove fungus and parasites but i can't find the post anymore.

Fw dip is not a good idea for fish or corals. I have done a Iodine dip for corals. Just dont know about Zoos. Also corals cannot get ick.
