    Hey guys,

    I got these blue hornets about a month ago. They have been doing great but have been closed lately. I noticed some white specs on the polyps today.

    Is this zoopox? What should I do. I bought a box of furan-2 just in case it is.

    This zoa frag is in close proximity to other zoo frags on my frag shelf, is this bad?

    I dont have a quarantine tank either (limited space in apt) so what should I do?

    Any sort of help is greatly appreciated.

    I have no idea what the latest trend is for this.

    I think you may be right. Treat all of your zoos for pox.

    Any suggestions or anything on how to do this? I have no idea how, I never heard of zoopox up until today. Is it contagious? Is that why you said to treat all zoas? That scares me cause I have a lot of zoos in my tank.

    I haven't done it myself so I suggest searching the web on how to do it. Coral Pedia might be a good place to start. You want to treat all of the zoas to make sure none have it and to prevent having to treat again.

    Looks like I have a little bit of work ahead of me.

    Anyone else have to deal with this that could give me some pointers or advice?
