Anyone have a successful way in getting rid of the small blue cloves? I'm trying to take care of them now before they grow like a weed in my tank. They are starting to grow on the back of my tank glass too.

You just have to clean them out, little by little. That's why you don't add certain things to your tank!

If you can find "fluke tabs" for sale somewhere they will take care of them. Nick Tenny had them and used that to get rid of them. Maybe you could ask him where he got them and how he used them?

Wouldn't Fluke tabs kill other coral? And inverts, like beneficial flatworms?

Anything used to kill Aiptasia will also kill coral polyps such as Blue Clove. I prefer Kalkwasser paste, myself.

I keep those beautiful polyps, also Green Star Polyps, Briarium, etc., on pieces of rock on the sand or situated in the aquascape so that the growth does not spread to other rocks before moving the rock to the sand or selling it to someone.

Rocks are very easy to break up with a chisel/screwdriver and hammer. Save or sell pieces with or without encrusted coral.

Good luck. Hug

Thank's everyone! I'm going to work on cleaning up the small patches I have left.
