Have a 48x24x24 housed with 1 Clown(other passed recently) 1 purple firefish, 1 behgai Cardinal, 1 watchman goby and pistol shrimp, 1 LNB, 1 Mids Blenny,1 cleaner shrimp, 1 arrow crab, BTA,1 meat coral, 1 small zoa frag(10 polyps?), 1 torch, 1 blasto(7-8 polyps?) And today I picked up a Zoa colony.

After dipping Zoa colony and placing in tank I've knotice LNB nipping and hunting but not at the Zoas. More between them and toward the rock. I posted in zoa forum about what can be seen from Dip. Any opi ions advice is appreciated in advance

I think it is more likely picking microfauna (for example Worms, even the useful ones). I wouldn’t worry unless you see the coral is extremely irritated by this or actually being picked off by the butterfly.

How do you take care of your tank after the storm? As the electricity and WiFi come back on, how do you get your tank back to normalcy?
