    I have this frag in my qt tank just purchased it a few weeks ago. I done 3-
    Bayer dips on it 1 before going into qt 1 about 3 days later and final dip about a week after that the reason for the the dips was 1 st dip prophylactic the 2nd I started seeing white spots and 3rd I seen a worm that was very tiny 1/4” long moved quite fast, black in color crawled off the zoa and E4F3B700-E98C-4651-9ADE-71D68B9289C6.png into a tiny hole in the frag plug. Does this look like pox or something else?

    most people/zoas have a very good success rate of being cured..get the Furan2 packets and fill plastic disposable 16 oz cup 3/4 full with tank water/half packet or a little less and mix well and use big tweezers to put frag in cup..dont touch the furan 2 water ...do search on this forum for all the info,,it easy
