Yep and not happy about it I've been fighting it for a long time. Also doesnt help that currently I'm out of country and have been thoigh my family has been awesome with tank maintenance. My new tank I'm doing the fish, inverts and corals are making the transfer but none ofnthe rock will. (Of course going to cycle the new tank) all coral will get treated to a dip as well and gunna scrub snail and hermit shells to do the best to keep it from transferring (I also really dont like the idea of using chemicals to rid the tank of it)

odds are you will if they are that plentiful in the current system. Enough of them (i imagine) will be able to ride on over.
I'm going to do what I can to prevent that with the next by dipping the corals I'm transferring. The red planaria was what made realize I needed to dip corals and change up new additions especially when I upgrade. My tank which I'm hoping feburary will be the time frame I start the cycle on the new tank. The tank when i ordered it had a 8-12 week lead time so beginning of February it should ship at the latest

Tomorrow is the big Day! My New tank will finally arrive, found out I'm missing a piece to a wavemaker, lovely, workign on figuring out whether i misplaced it or need to get a new part, contact support from the company I ordered from since it was a piece they had use for photo shoots. Side note almost lost my my ricordea when using flat worm exit, they are slowly bouncing back reduced light, and their mouths are closing (looked up about yuma's and when they aren't fairing well, they have been recovering though.

I have taken some photos of some of the process of my aquarium controller cabinet. and will contineu to take progress pics and do a photo dump and write up later =)

Tank was Delivered safe and sound, will upload photos soon. no damages, very high quality packing too, got a few more things to buy locally, then can set it up and also need to order rock and sand and figure out my water situation most likely going to buy 5 gallon just of distilled water for the initial, need to also buy turbo start and ammonia source (most likely through Algae barn) to start the cycle.
