    AFAIK, Interceptor is useful against red bugs, not sure about black bugs, but definitely not AEFW (unless things have changed)

    If you have AEFW, act fast on it; not pretty pic.
    Do not blow around them with a turkey baster? inside the tank; take out the frag/colony and do it in a separate container/tank.

    My friend tank has bugs issue. He already did and dipping cause more damage than fix.

    Using meds is also a risk, corals are already stressed when there's an infestation.
    There's a Bayer pet med? on the market, read it somewhere on the forums; I'm sure someone will chime in bout the Bayer product (not InterC)...

    Dipping in Bayer will kill AEFW but will not affect eggs.

    Vincent's right on that; eggs will be the hardest to spot. My kids had a toy microscope you could plug into your tv and watch creepy stuff; very useful to look at tiny bugs back when I had the tank at home.
