It was with some BamBams, so it blended in great.  I wonder if these change color to match what they prey on?

Does anyone know what it takes from Egg to the size pictured in the photo?   Trying to figure out if I missed eggs, or the effectiveness of Revive.

I've come across a spaghetti worm, which I have only seen a few times, & a bristle worm. The bristle is probably about 3 - 4" now. I will look for a picture of the bristle. It's pretty big.

Live Aquaria Limited Edition Coral. Comes with certification of authenticity, vet checked and guaranteed pest free. Grown on site in their aquaculture facility. Actual picture on their site of their famous Acropora Secale aka Purple Haze Acro. Red bug infested



ORA corals from saltwaterfish.com. They told me all their ORA corals are kept separate from any other corals and if I found anything then it came from ORA that way. Here is what I found.

Did your Purple Haze from LA have red bugs too?    What did Live Aquaria have to say.   Has to make you think of what defines a pest.

What is on the second picture.......or is that the coral that the flat worms came from?

It could have however I treated with interceptor and red-bugs hide and are so small that I don't think they could be seen when dipping. The picture from saltwaterfish.com is of the coral that the flatworms came from. Not sure if that is AEFW or some other kind but I throw it away, didn't chance it.

No.   It disturbs them and make is easy to blow off.......but where there are flat worms, there are typically eggs.   The eggs can be hard to find, and are much more of a concern.

So if you wanted to save a coral, you need to qt it? Are you safe then. Or is it best to just pitch em?
