Red bugs

So I believe I have red bugs on my one acro frag. The frag is still healthy and growing but I've heard conflicting reports about red bugs. Anyone have any experience dealing with them?

Yep been there. I dipped the corals in bayer advanced with germ killer ( pretty sure that's the name) and I got a pipefish (believe it was a dragons face) from a local reefer and after a couple months the pipe had eaten what the coral dip hadn't killed and I returned it.

Only problem is the acro is encrusted on a rock lol. I literally saw maybe two. I just don't want to treat my whole tank with interceptor

Well you were thinking about a 5th fish, how about a nice red bug eating pipe fish?

He's a flametail and is just a jerk haha. He kills clams, rips my royal grammas fins up and doesn't eat any algae...

Wow your a better person than I am, if a fish killed one of my clams they'd find themselves in a lfs tank so fast. Hopefully Mr_X has a solution for you in that reef encyclopedia of a brain of his I would be hesitant to treat the whole tank too

I can't catch him lol. Yeah I just talked to a friend who had them and he said prazipro may work as a dip to kill them.
