Get in the look out for zoa eating nudis. Look at the closed zoas at night (with a flashlight) and look for little nudis the same color as the zoa, or any color.

+1 they come out at night and will eat your whole colony in one sitting.

if you can take them out and re dip them in coral RX and inspect them.

I don't think it's any type of bug I have been looking for something like that. I think it's either my emerald crabs or my hermit crabs.

so I will take them out and see if they stop disappearing

I have been trying to get the carbs out bit have failed every time. I really think it is them.

I don't frag or glue them myself that's how I buy them. Unless everyone else glue job is no good. Could be that I guess. But the mauls and hornets that are gone weren't glued they grew on the rock.

what test kit are you using? also if you lost that much stuff each and ever night. i think you have a Zoa Eatting NUDI. at first before i saw the pictures i thought they were rocks of zoas. your not gonna find that little sucker cause hes in your rock work make sure you keep tabbs on your reef at night wehn the lights go out if youhave a small dimmed flashlight you can shine it in your tank and keep a close eye out.

from all your stuff said and done i think its a nudi.
