    The only two predators(besides fish) I'm aware of are nudibranches and sundial snails.If it is a predator then dipping and putting them right back in the tank will most likely do no good.Especially if you have other zoas in the tank.In that case,a QT is needed.

    There are many types of amphipods and some may not be good guys.I use to visit a Goniopora coral site and there was evidence of some larger ones that may or may not feeding on the tentacles closest to the sandbed of gonis.Were they just irrating the coral or feeding on them?The answer is who knows,there still alot we don't know about this hobby or just discovering now.

    To help prevent an infestation of flatworms and other undesirable hitchhikers, I dip all my new corals in an iodine bath like Tropic Marin Pro Coral Cure before introducing them into my tank. Understandably I get a bit paranoid about introducing things like flatworms into my display tanks.
