    Posted: July 06 2015 at 11:22am

I purchased a frag about a year and a half ago that apparently had blue clove polyps on it.  I do not remember visually seeing the cloves.  At first I thought they added a nice element to my tank but now they have taken over my tank and choking out zoas an other corals.  They are even all over my maxima clam.  I was planning to completely take down my tank for a move and treat everything but wondering if there is an alternative.  I have heard of fluke tabs but sound risky.  Anyone else have experience with getting rid of these? Here they are choking out my rastas:

Fluke tabs were discontinued, so good luck finding them (although I still have a stash). Kalk paste and sodium hydroxide works on what you can see in small treatments.

I wouldn't sell these due to tank impact.  You would hate me later.  Smile

If you would feel bad for selling these, then would you be willing to give some away? One man's weed is another man's garden.  I have a nearly empty 29 gal biocube that I would LOVE to have some of these in.  On a rock, but itself, to the side.   It wouldn't spread beyond where I'd want it. 

Think about it. 

Thanks!

I looked for any posts znoob did since this one but unfortunately, this was the last time he posted here. He is probably gone from the hobby by now. I have more free stuff if you want to call or text.

Aloha,
Mark
