    Beautiful man. I wish I can keep all the sides clean like yours. When I used to have some anemones they always move around. Your water parameter must be perfect. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What fish eat zoa?

    thank you guys for the suggestions. I will start with the Kalk paste to see if I can slowly control and reduce the Zoa number within the next 2 weeks. Im planning to inject 1~2 per day and see how it go.

    What fish eat zoa?

    Ya I was just angry [emoji23] but it is pink and gold look nice but it is choking all my corals around it. I got this from a wamas meeting as a few polyps frag. A year later... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What fish eat zoa?

    Ya this is one big rock about 24” long with many coral encrusted on it. It is in my 30gallon nano tank. Maybe instead of kalk paste a whole chunk which I read from many palytoxin horror stories online I would do 2 polyps a day before leaving for work each morning. This way when they die and release the toxin, I’m not around. Though a fish or invert that eat zoa I think would be the best bet. No nudibranch though maybe some kind of crazy crab or hermit?

    What fish eat zoa?

    I got this ugly zoa/paly growing all over the rock in my nano tank mix in with some hair algea. The rock can not be remove or chip apart as it is the base of the rock work. I was thinking of scrapping or kalk paste the zoa but afraid it might crash my tank with palytoxin. I can’t even remove the hair algea properly without messing with the zoa. My plan is to get a fish that eat these kind of zoa. Any suggestion on fish that proven to eat zoa & paly? I can remove most of the other coral in my tank except for a huge colony of Duncan and some basic sps and my pair of clownfish. This is the zoa in question. Brown with yellowish speckles.

    Coral banded shrimp

    they are more aggressive than the skunk and fire shrimp for sure. I wouldn't keep them mix with other shrimps. I had a big one that will chase after new fish when I add them to the tank.

    Advice on breaking down a tank

    Let us know if you need any help feel free to reach out to members on the forum. I know a lot of members have big setup like ReefBum mentioned that can help hold the livestock coral/fish etc and give away to other reefers who starting out. Someone gave me a free skinny yellow tang 2 years ago when I first start out and he is my favorite fish. The idea of adopting someone else fish and give it a home is a lot better than buying at the store.
