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.

What do you guys think? Can emerald crabs eat polyps and live? Does playtoxin not effect them?
