    I also had this happen blk. We've had a few discussions about this problem.
    A guy on a other forum said he mixed a container with 3 parts hydrogen peroxide and one part water.
    Used that as a dip for his zoa Melting and had luck.
    I have not tried it.

    My gorillas had this problem a few weeks ago. I coral rx dipped. Moved them from mid tank to the bottom and they haven't shown anymore since of melting but they haven't died off yet.
    Dunno if they'll survive or not. Their atkeast holding. I have lots a few frags to this problem.
    I've seen today and a few times in the past I have those vermitid little sundial snails. Pisces found a site that had a write up or pests towards zoas. Spaghetti worms also were brought up on that website.
    I also have tons of those, even tho they have been deemed totally safe.
    Another idea was to cut off the uneffected zoa and try to save them, as someone I see stated.
    Long story short. I don't know. It has to be something. Btw when I did do the rx I only found Copepods and one bristle work looking thing. It was tiny.


    Good luck with them. let us know what you find

    Ok did the Coral RX dip on the zoas and palys and some are already opening back up and even ones that looked kinda melted are starting to look better. Just one frag that I got befor this started is still dieing. I will pull it out and throw it away.........not worth having it reinfect the rest.

    I was told to use tank water to make the mix and I did that. I used a Coral RX one shot and made a gallon of water and treated my zoas and nothing came off them. So I think it was a bacterial attack from a bad frag of Ding Dangs I got that never really opened. I will from now on dip all my corals and zoas. I am trying to get the wife to let me set up a QT tank but we don't really have a spot to do it. BUT I'm still working on her.....LOL

    I use tank water with the shot let them sit for a bit, then a little bowl of clean fresh water just to swish everything off then back in the tank they to.
    I even doubled the strength like it said you can last time

    Glad it works for someone

    This is a year old thread. Just sayin...
    Melting of a zoa or paly would be water parameters and not light. Light would b bleaching or closing up and not opening again imoe.
