  • Red Bugs gone, growth spurt begins.

    I borrowed Naka's nice Canon 10D camera with a macro lens on it and noticed that I had red bugs last week. Well yesterday, I ran the treatment and today, I noticed a growth spurt on my Loisettae. There were white tips growing all over the coral already. Pretty amazing and I didnt do anything different to my tank lately.

          Only one. One always works for me. Another positive note is that my peppermint shrimp was floating around my tank. I have been wanting to remove this shrimp for the longest time since it picks at my soft corals. All other shrimp stayed alive. Oh and I used Interceptor.

                Most likely an LFS. I didnt have them for the longest time and now they reappeared lately. Glad they are gone though.

                      not really.... My experience is with a Tort and Humilis frags from the States. It is almost never seen before. Maybe because no one really import Fiji corals in Taiwan. (that's where I heard it was from) The impoted sps corals is mostly from Indonesia. And the local sps seem to be free of these bugger as well.

                        What did you use to remove the red bugs from your corals?

                            Baboo.. have you tried to kill them? It makes a HUGE difference in coral health. Over time, they will infest the rest of your tank. I remember seeing some people in Taiwan did have them and they posted pictures. This was a while back on a Taiwan forum.

                            Nestor, jbz is right. Since this is an international forum, some people may of never of heard about the red bugs. Inspect your corals REAL close and you will see them with your eye. Interceptor is a heart worm medicine for dogs. Its a pill you dose into your tank and it will kill these bugs.. but it may also kill crabs, shrimp and other misc inverts. Its definitely worth it though if your primary goal is to raise SPS.
