Zoas fungal infection

Hello. My zoas have a fungal infection. What can I do to save them? I moved the rock into my frag tank. Is there a dip/ method of removing it. Thanks!

Some coralRX would do some good.

Is it zoa pox? You'll need to dip in furan 2 if so

Dipped before I put in (about a month and 2 weeks) and again when they wouldn't open up. Not Zoa pox. Dip was in coral rx for 7-9 minutes. Not affecting any other zoos. Moved into frag tank. Water conds perfect.

Can you show us a picture? Is there anyway you can blow or gently brush it off in some old tank water and put it back into the tank?

Sounds like what mine had when I received them in the mail. I dipped in melafix twice then rubbed the algae/fungus off. Seemed to work. They are clean and almost fully open after a couple days rest.
