Gentle on Corals, Tough on Parasites & Hitchhikers
Great preventative protocol for dipping newly acquired corals, treating infected colonies and quarantining coral. Most reef tank owners do not have access to well designed quarantine systems as they are expensive and time consuming. Many times this leads to significant losses brought on by infestations. Dipping your corals in CoralRx provides a quick, safe, and effective solution to minimize those risks.
Coral Rx was independently tested by Andrew Lynford, M.S. in Biology from Hofstra University. This investigation attempted to quantify the efficacy of three chemical flatworm controls: Flatworm Exit, Coral Rx and Povidone. His research is available in a featured article published in Advanced Aquarist, April 2009. Below are excerpts of his findings:
Quarantining corals and live rock with coral dips is the best way to deal with marine flatworms because it prevents their introduction, and circumvents the problems associated with convolutrilobid toxin release.
Harvesting coral reef taxa (species) to replace livestock lost through convolutriloba toxin release is environmentally costly, and should be prevented by using coral dips.
Coral Rx removes many of the “hard to deal with” coral pests like Acropora-Eating Flatworms, Montipora-Eating Nudibranchs and Zoanthid-Eating Nudibranchs.
Coral Rx should not be used on fish, shrimp, crabs, snails, clams or other invertebrates. We have not tested CoralRx’s effectiveness on Acropora Red Bugs.
