    hi,

    They trimmed back the frogspawn at my work and were about to throw away what looked like a dead branch. I noticed 2 tiny heads on it, so I threw it in my nano. The two heads have doubled in size over about a month and a third baby has popped up. Looking to give this away for free. Donation of mushroom or common zoa would be nice but not required at all. There's also a vermetid tube snail on it as well.

    One catch, I noticed two small bubble Algae on two parts. You'd have to pluck it off or cut off those dead branches.

    I've never had experience, but I remember reading online that people have had success using nail clippers to clip them off or superglueing them shut. It's net hasn't really bothered anything in my tank so I let it be, but he has also doubled in size as well.

    Are you in a hurry to unload it? I probably won't get a chance to go south till next week.

    I use a bone/SPS cutter. Plucks right off easily.

    Do you still have the Frog spawn? I have some bright green mushrooms to trade?

    Oh if you should totally trade it. It is your frag after all.

    The mucus threads annoy the rest of your sessile Invertibrates

    Cool, we'll eventually have more frags when we trim back again. I'll set one aside for you.

    As of right now, it's only bothering the GSP, which is probably a good thing... hopefully it's slowing down it's growth

    KILL IT!

    Or you will see an increasing number of small white spots all over your rock n aquarium walls that have long sticky tendrils of mucus or snot that come out when u feed the tank!

    When I see 1 I trace back to where it is coming from and smash it with vengeance! If I could kill each with fire I would, just so I can imagine the screaming as the flames consume it!!!!!!




    Can you tell I hate them with a passion!?!

    I remember the first one that got in my tank. I had no idea it was bad. Now there's probably 10,000 (no joke). I share the same sentiments as @Vhuang168 and @Kensington Reefer

    Get a clipper of some kind (like you'd use to frag an acro) and cut that thing in half!
    Expose and remove the worm/snail body. Don't waste your time or glue. You want an immediate result
