picked the green ones up today the others i had.
is this a bad nem type thing i should remove?
Looks great! Very nice collection. Yeah, you want to get rid of it or have a plague like I did. Don't pull on it or mess with it. Try boiling water in a needle. I find that works the best around zoas.
how do i get said needle and how do i boil water in it? lol im new to this
Nice looking Zoanthids Shecter - the green ones look very intense in color
you need a syringe really with needle not sure where you would go for one of these to be honest
I use Aiptasia X , which comes with a syringe and provided you follow the instructions properly ( move slowly towards the pest nem, allow tentacles to close around needle and then cover nem with the paste) it does work
if you go to fast and spook the nem into withdrawing and then still squirt it anyway
then it does not work - best case scenario in that event is the single nem comes back
worse case scenario is you spooked the nem into releasing mini nems (preservation instinct) and then you end up with dozens of them
so if using Aiptasia X move slowly towards it and release liquid as you do so
allow tentacles to close around needle and then paste the central disc of the nem with the Aiptasia X
I have an 80 % success rate with it now
when I 1st started , I reckon it was less than 50%
I don't know if each state is different, but I can buy them at CVS for 12 cents. They work great!
