Did you dip it first? I learned the hard way to dip and inspect my zoas for nudis. The dips will kill the adults, but you'll have to manually find and remove the eggs. They can decimate a nice looking colony like that pretty fast.

Seachem makes a coral disinfectant. The dose is 5ml per gallon of removed tank water. I never remove that much, because you throw it out- not back in. Usually a container just big enough for the coral. 5-10min dip. A lot of copepods and amphipids will fall off too, but it also gets most baddies. If you find Nudibranchs, you'll have to inspect each polyp for eggs and remove manually.

I do this to all my frags. You'd be amazed what comes off! I even found a mantis once.
