Killing Zoa Nudis using Pro Coral Cure

I used this recently to kill the nudi infestation in my nano with some sucess though im not sure if it killed the eggs. Anyone else used the tropic marin with good sucess?

I dipped using the sugested dosage but instead of 15mins i dipped for 30. It seemed to kill the algea on the zoas along with the nudis and any other creatures on the colony. Anyone else have any input on this?

It's worked for me in the past on living nudis. Looks like there is some research showing that potassium permanganate kills eggs without too much damage to the corals...
Was it for this my life I sought... Maybe so Maybe not.

It wont kill eggs but it will stun and eventually kill the living hatched ones.... Coral Revive is actually quicker and easier on corals, but the zoanthids and palys are much harder than SPS anyway so it doesn't matter.
