Tally of dead polyps: 1P Jason fox *** Krack, 4P BamBams, 8P blue hornets, 3P golden sopranos, 4P Jason fox crazy ladies, 10P tub blues, 10P yellow hornets, 10P darth maul, 10P Rastas, 6P golden ding dongs I have been looking every night for some sort of bug or nudi see nothing. Only thing I can think of is my emerald crabs and hermit crabs but they have been in there since the beginning. This is really making me want to break my tank down!

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.
