    Has anyone tried these two together to kill them off? Or a juiced up majano wand?

    I have not needed to use them. There are mixed reviews from what I've read. I've seen a couple of endorsements from more trusted sources, that I'd try them if I needed to try them. It sounds like they are similar to aptasia nudi's where it takes a while to notice the effect. They can go after clean up crew snails too especially after the vermetid snails run out.

    Again this is all just from reading on the forums with a similar mixed results to aptasia nudi's.

    I have an order in at new wave for bumblebees. I have vermited all over, especially in my sump rock. I am excited to see if it actually works, otherwise I don't know how I could ever get rid of them all.

    Been using it to kill zoa pretty effectively.

    Interesting to see what the want does to ORP immediately after use. Perhaps stray voltage could be discovered by ORP...

    I'm having a hard time telling if it worked on them. I don't have any of the monsters others have.
