If the below has the pic I am asking for, this works great. It is basically a sponge and a piece of PVC. Place over the nem and it will crawl up the pipe towards the light. This can be repeated over and over. Nems are easy to remove from the pipe and no need to destroy your rock work.
@Lost in the Sauce do you still have the pic of the "Major Steve Nem Removal Tool"?
One Nem Cannon, coming up!
Exactly. Home Depot special grout sponge.That PVC trick is AWESOME!!! Sponge looks like local home improvement grout tile sponge, so those are easy to pickup (and cheap). Somehow I never heard of this tip. Like @Neptune 555 my tank grows extra BTAs, at one point up to 13. I take my extras to local fish store and get wholesale credit that I can apply towards anything else I need in store (retail cost). My last order of food & stuff was nearly free.
I am open... Candy cane coral (to replace the candy cane coral that the BTA's killed, sea fans, I like soft corals, I would say no to Xenia if it is the prolific kind that took over my rocks previously. I want some color and have left space for coral. Either way I would be happy to share some of my BTA's.New Hampshire you say? What kind of corals would you be looking for?
The only softie I currently have is a Kenya tree, and I feel like they're a dime a dozen haha I'm not sure where you're located, but all the LFS' in reasonable driving distance seem to struggle with BTA's. The thought that there are some happy tank raised nems locally is enticing lolI am open...

Rubber band or fishing line to hold the sponge.OK giving this a try to reduce my BTA population. For those who have already achieved success....
1. My sponge wants to float away? How did you get yours to stay in place?
2. b/c I have so many BTA's ow do you cover a colony of them?
Also doing the drip method... for smaller rocks that can be moved
