    Slugs on Clavularia sp.

    Can someone help me figure out what these are? Are they pests? They seem to cling to the Clove polyp stalks. I have removed the two colonies and given them a Lugols bath, but they're back. Two pix, first one slug, second one egg sack? stuck to base of polyp. How do I get rid of them? Will they infect my other zoos etc...

    Steve, The Krib has some good articles on Clavularia and "worm-like" slugs. There were a few different situations, I didn't know which one to link, have a look.
