zoa eating spiders

Recommended Posts

The only ones that look sick is the ones that are gone there is only like 10 polyps left should I just get them off the rock and dip it and hope they aren't on the otheres?

Careful I've had them probley like four months maybe five since I noticed somthing eatting the zoas there slow but there may be more and there hard as shit to see when uder or in the zoa

I had one, posted pics of it in my thread, if you want to check it out. Fortunately I only had hte one, so far no others. I keep a close watch.

Can try a sixline. Yellow Coris are great but too big for your tank.

true but i don't have dip solutions lolol. I've never dipped a coral before in the 7 years of this hobby. I'm pretty sure there isn't another spider, I been checking, I got good eyes lol. I will get a six line for sure tho ahah, just waiting on a candy basslet too lol, add both same time.

Oh I would not add a sixline with a candy basslet. As they age.. they get mean... might kill your beautiful $$$ fish. Doesn't really matter if you add the candy 1st or both at same time... a candy would not stand a chance. Your tank is so small a sixline will likely claim it all.

No guarantee, some wrasses will eat them. It is sort of a individual fish thing... I said sixline because its really the only wrasse that fits that might have a go at them. If you had a large tank, I would have chosen a big fat coris wrasse or melanurus as they rip shit off the rock and bang it around in a brutal murderous killer pest eating rage..... but they are large. I had a 5 inch super male at one point and he would grab snails and slam them on the rocks to break them open and eat them :eek:

 

 If you plan on a candy, I would just dip the zoa's. More spiders might hatch too soo keep looking.

 

At least they are not mushroom eating spider's ;)

LOL I looked at the post title and thought of it going the other way before opening and reading the real reason.  I thought the post would be about you feeding spiders to your zoas! 😄
