You can but problem is , in numbers, they steal food, annoy some coral and even sting nearby coral as they colonize

Yeah but with my setup it will be impossible to remove any corals or rocks. There are a lot and can't see them ever going away.

It’s crazy that you posted this. I just battled them for the last few months. It’s been terrible. I read a ton on it an ended up using the Safe-Guard with Fenbendazole. I had lost like 4 or 5 sps before trying this but it was honestly my last ditch effort to starting over with new rock. I didn’t lose anything, but it definitely affected a torch that I have. It’s been about a month now and I haven’t seen any. It will kill most of your snails, I still can’t put some snails in without them dying within a few hours to days. There’s a thread on here that explains how to do it, it’s a pain in the but sifting through the packets to get the fenbendazole, but it worked as of now

I narrowed it down to where mine began, there’s one on the bottom of this frag. They slowly took over and I had no idea what to do, killing them is hard. In total I lost 7 other SPS frags, and it sucked. And my wife was super ticked 0DA14E35-E963-49C0-B604-A589182FB751.jpeg

I nuked all my rock before I put them in my 265 gallon because of the hydroids and bubble algae. I only put of few corals in the new tank. I dipped and scrubbed the one I put back and still got them. I could have got the from the cheato I put in a couple of months ago because I didn't see them before that.
 

Do you take notice when your coral starts stretching or shrinking?
