They are live bearers, so you don't have to worry about eggs. Chances are though, if one coral has them, you may have them all over. The dragon pipefish had been reported to eat them but it's like any other remedy- hit or miss. Plus the pipefish can be like a mandarin in that all it will eat are pods. I used interceptor.

Yeah I'm not gonna do the pipe, I'd try to just borrow one if I did but not worth the hassle. Have you heard of people using ivermectin? I was searching reef central and it seems to be a viable option as I don't think I can get interceptor anytime soon

Well I did the dip in ivermectin and it seems to be successful. No moving bugs on the acro and the polyps are out more than they've been in weeks. All other acros I dipped still look great, no signs of bugs

One last question mr.x. You said they don't lay eggs so if I got them all they shouldn't come back right?
