I think we should wait for a better photo also. (I trusted that others would chime in and I hope they are right that this is just pods!)
We need reliable validation before we get worried, if we can help it...
This is the best I can zoom in on it. This is the zoa they came off.

We need someone familiar with zoa pests, suspected pods? or Nudis? Or?

Someone give @Mike33515 some help as he found something on the zoa's above and is wondering what's up with this colony. Looks like a picture of a suspect next to the airstone?

I'm out of guesses and zoa's pests are a mystery to me. Thanks Reefers!

I’m 99.9% sure it’s not a nudi from pictures on google. It looks more like a amphipod from pictures on google. Do they eat zoas? From what I’m reading it’s yes or no in the reef world.

Update on the zoa it’s not looking great skin is coming off and lost a head today on it. Trying to figure out what to do if I can save it.

My gut instinct was a pod. I have seen pods on my corals that weren’t doing great. If you have one that is more sensitive to touch, it may cause them to close up a bit more, not helping their situation. It’s like the vultures circling a soon to be dead bunny. ;Sorry

I second the iodine dip. Make sure it’s staying clean and that chemistry is where it needs to be. I’ve had some come back from looking worse. Fingers crossed!
