    Well Here We Go Again!

    Got home from work last night looked in the tank. NOOOO IT CAN'T BE!!!
    I thought they were gone for good. But there they were Monti Munching Nudi's. I guess 5 &1/2 months was not long enough.
    I up picking nudi's off my cap until 1am. I'll check it again every night for the next who Knows how long.
    I will not let them get my caps this time :guns: I will fight these till they're gone.

    Checked out my monti cap tonight, good news no nudi's.
    I know it's not over, but at least I can sleep tonight.

    I was just reading a thread on RC last night and someone said they bought a banana wrasse and it ate all their Monti eating Nudi's. I would look into this a little more and maybe this fish could help you out.

    I had zoa eating nudi's in my tank, I asked questions online and someone gave me this link to look at. Check this article out. Nudi's are serious business, be careful!! And take a look at the link. I donít know if monti eating nudiís are the same but just in case take a look.

    Got a yellow wrasse after my first out break , kept my tank free of caps for 5.5 months since the nudi's destroyed all my caps. (Also did not find them until it was too late, and I didn't know what I was dealing with)

    Thanks for the info , but I always use tweezers or a toothpick to get them off my caps.

    I'm sure if I keep checking my caps I will win the battle , I found them early this time.

    You know I think we need to start a post about all the things yellow wrasses are good for. I'm starting to think every tank should have one.

    While picking nudi's the other night I tried to get a picture but they are very small and I could not get a clear picture.
    You might try a search on RC someone there may have a better camera than me.

    I'm using a seachem reef dip it doesn't kill them but it does stun them so your able to pick them off, it also makes it easier to see them.
