  4. Thanks so much Weetie. It was definitely discouraging in the beginning especially after discovering the black bugs but at this point I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Just have to be a bit more patient. And if anyone else is having similar issues let me know I can detail my method more thoroughly. Thanks Mark I really appreciate it!
  5. Hey TJ sorry somehow I missed your reply. Well so far the dipping has went pretty well. After the first few dippings I laid off a bit because the frags didnt look too hot. In the meantime I added a frag rack and gave them some time to recover. What took me by surprise was I also discovered black bugs (they look like copepods but are darker and like to burrow inside the polyps of the acros) My initial thoughts was I should just burn all my acros and start over but ultimately decided against it. I wanted to give my best effort first and hopefully document what works as there wasnt much info on them. So I went back to my dipping regimen (every 4 days in melafix marine 20ml per 1/2 cup of tank water) This worked well but I still had a number of these pods in the tank. So I finally added a yellow coris wrasse and he made a huge difference in just a week or two. I was a bit sad to see thousands of pods reduced to almost nothing but it was worth it. I wish I remembered to take a pic of the millepora as it was almost bleached white but still had a tiny bit of PE now its gotten most of its color back despite repeated dips and abuse. I also decided to keep adding to my montipora collection as they were totally unaffected by these pests... picked up a nice appleberry. Im happy overall since I havent seen anymore black bugs and just one small flatworm in my last dip. So things are definitely looking up. The plan is to dip 1-2 a week for the next month and if I can't find any pest ill discontinue dipping and finally let these guys color back up. Im a bit amazed at their resilience as I didn't think they would be able to handle so much stress. Just in case you guys never seen a flatworm up close. Took a pic..
