    I've noticed them on some of the shrooms at my LFS, too.
    It turned out to be flatworms when I got a closer look.

    I suppose it would really be up you...
    I wouldn't. Although I suppose if you dipped them there wouldn't be very many (if any) that got into your tank.

    If you get anything from that LFS, I would dip it in flatworm exit. Just to be on the safe side. Flat worms can kill your tank if there is a mass die off.

    You can also dip the coral in with an Iodine solution like TM Pro Coral Cure or similar product. The iodine will act as an antiseptic and hopefully kill whatever the pest is.

    I think i'm going to start going to yet another LFS about 45 minutes away....this place got new management and seemed to be going in the right direction ,but more and more i'm starting to see the same old crappy ways they used to run it...

    I lost my good ol trusted family LFS of 30+ years and now nothing seems to measure up to them.....I'm still sad
