    how too kill palys....

    hey i bought this rock of some awsome zoas

    but unfortunately there are 6 really ugly palys on it. how do i go about killing them... i would frag them off but the zoas are growing over and in between them. should i just wait a while and frag some of the zoas off and then get the brown ones off too?

    you can try to poison them using a seringe with the same kalkwasser paste mix we use on anemones. Sting/stab it in the tube and fill it with the paste.. should do the trick. most corals can't survive this threatment.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    your local drug stores would have it.. i go to Jean Coutu.
    they charge ~10cents.. its a service they have to sell them to you.. and they are not allowed to question your use of them
