We found incidence of this disease in our coral research facility. One tank in particular is infested. They grow on the plastic grids, the sediment, the glass sides, and even in the skimmer. However, some fragments, which are mostly acroporids and pocilloporids, are very much affected while others are not. It appears that healthy tissue and growth overcome the rate of infestation. We are looking into a means to erradicate these pests without harming the coral or having to tear down the tank (probably unlikely). Has anyone had any luck dealing with these critters?
