There is no silver bullet "best". My favorite in general is a red coris but they need a very large tank. In qt i keep a yellow.

For zoa nudis though i always have good luck with flatworm exit. Requires multiple tank treatments cause it wont get the eggs, but it is a generally safe and effective treatment. Natural predators are more likely to keep populations under control moreso than eradicate them completely.

i was reading about this today too! but some of the replies were saying their fish were dying instantly with it? maybe i should read more about it? or do both the wrasse and this if the wrasse doesn't eat.

Thats a new one to me. Been using over a decade and never an issue with wide variety of fish. I use it as part of dip regimen on any incoming coral.

Only issues i have ever heard was when used for flatworms but seems more likely that is more from the flatworm death rather than the flatworm exit. Sounds like you have read of others with not so good of results so i cant explain that other than personally never had any issue.

instead of one pest eating wrasse.... just add like 8 of them... that should put a dent....
