I have these as well and they’re starting to get big. Please tell me I can remove the rock and pull them with tweezers. Can I kill the leftover root by dabbing it with something strong like peroxide or bleach? Will an urchin eat them?Ive seen dinos beaten before at least 20 times but never seen a single neomeris invasion about ten sprigs or more beaten not once ever in reefing, so I guess its #1
the plant that the marine algae database calls moderately easy to grow lol
vs 1 sprig of that plant, I'd input 4 mils of someone's best prorocentrum slurry.
They're digging in the rocks via acidic holdfasts like dandelions from hades. Go ahead kill them here, put bleach on them, put some windex on it they'll just pop up on the underside where there is no light. You will never escape, quit reefing if you get one of these it's a sign.
So chisel it at the base. I’ll give that a tryTaki those annulata have boring holdfasts that go down into the rock and pop up elsewhere, try this way to see if helps
take out a test rock and with a flathead screwdriver cleaned off, press down under it, score the rock with a dig, lift out the sprig. Clean the whole test rock that way leaving little dig pits n scrapes. Set test rock back in and compare it to other treatment methods for best outcome
peroxide won’t help bleach kills the rock save that for last
