The other day during routine tank maintenance I noticed this torch had a polyclad flatworm and lots of eggs. I dipped and manually removed all (hopefully) of the eggs. They were small and yellowish. I don't have a QT (shame on me) so that is why it is on the frag rack. I dipped the coral again after 4 days and did not see any worms or eggs. Today I was going to dip again for the flatworms and noticed these eggs? Growths? They look very different than the flatworm eggs and have appeared what seems like overnight as I have been keeping a close eye on this guy due to the recent issues. Any help or ideas would be awesome! Cheers!
