I had an issue as most will know with my fish in the QT to the point that they are now in the HT.
I also had an issue with an aiptasia stuck on a frag with xenia. I moved that to the QT until I could inject it with lemon juice which I've now done.
But as the QT had a case of disease (I haven't fully diagnosed which it is) I'm wondering whether or not to put it back in the DT now the aiptasia is injected?
Thoughts please. Ta

As you know the parasite has a free swimming stage, those could get stuck to the xenia or lodged in a crevice of the rock its on and you could transfer it that way? I dont think it inhabits the flesh of softies.
