    What are these? and how do I get rid of them?

    Not the zooanthids, but the other things. I think they are some type of anemone. They appear to have a foot and are very hard to just pull off whatever they are on.



    Any suggestions on how to rid myslef of this "pest"?

    Is that the only place they are? have they spread/multiplied fast? The only thing I can think of is it might be what's called a "Flower anemone"... I'm at a loss otherwise.

    Best bet is to tear all those ugly zoos out. Drop them in the sump and I'll come over and remove them for ya! :biglaugh2

    I have the same problem. They multiply very fast and are difficult to remove. I put a Hydnophora on its side right in the middle of a collony with little effects. The only effective way I have found to get rid of them is to try and pull them off the rocks with tweezers.

    If you find an easier way, let me know.

    I had them too. I did the same thing Andrew did and just started picking them out whenever I saw them. I did eventually get rid of them. I found that if I slipped a butter knive under the edge of the foot it was easier to get them off in one piece.

    I tried injecting a kalk paste. They didn't like it but bounced back quickly. During the last power outage there were around 6 that were out of the water for 4 hours and are still going strong.
