it's hard for me to get a good photo but I tried. I am finding these white worm looking things on my sps pieces and the glass and I don't know what they are. they look like little white works with lots of feelers. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/06/18/ysygusyg.jpg

Maybe an sps eating nudibranch :thumbdown:

A nudibranch of some sort, you'll have to keep an eye on them to see if they eat anything you don't want them to. Many nudibranches have very specialized diets and will only eat one specific type of food.

cat they have already completly eaten the red monti I got from you and the green spongodes are starting to bleach from them. I see them all over the corals that are starting to bleach. I found a link on reef sanctuary where someone else had the same looking nudi.

What other sps exactly? Monti eating nudibranches shouldn't bother other kinds of corals.

That is one pest I haven't battled yet, so I don't have any first hand advice for you here.

I think this might be my sign to take a break from sps. it's getting hard for me to have the time to keep up with the pristine water conditions. I'm gone from 7 am to 11 pm every night. I may have to post the rest of my sps for trade for lps.

If you do, just be sure to let people know about the nudis so they can take precautions :)
