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.
A flatworm that only effects Acropora, but does not affect all Acropora species. Some Acropora species are more prone to infection than others.
Bristleworm is loosely used term to describe all Polychaete class marine worms. It is the Pherecardia, Hermodice, and other related species that most aquarists need to be concerned about.
Montipora Eating Nudibranchs are a type of aeolid nudibranchs which are known to feed on coral. It is important to keep these parasites out of our aquaria.
Red Flatworms go by several different names; Convolutriloba retrogemma, red planaria, rust flatworms, and some refer to them as just flatworms.
Sea Spiders are not spiders in the traditional sense. They are not members of the arachnid family, but are, instead, marine arthropods known as pycnogonids
RTN and STN are used to describe the condition of tissue receding or coming off the coral or the coral turning white, which is known as bleaching. The speed at which this happens determines whether it is called rapid or slow tissue necrosis.
Zoanthid Eating Nudibranchs also are known as Zoa Eating Nudibranchs or Zoo Eating Nudibranchs are a type of aeolid nudibranchs which are known to feed on coral.
Heliacus variegatus is commonly known in the aquarium hobby as a Sundial snail or box snail. These nocturnal snails are known Zoanthid predators.
Bryopsis is a nuisance alga that can overgrow corals and live rock. It is generally dark green and filamentous. It is an indicator of high levels of nitrates and phosphates.
Coral Rx was designed by keeping the health of your coral in mind. Our proprietary blend of natural ingredients contains no iodine, which is known to stain corals, nor does Coral Rx contain oxidizers whose by-products are often toxic and continue to react with surrounding tissue.
Independent research also questions the effectiveness of iodine treatments. Please take a look at this feature article in Advanced Aquarist, April 2009.
Coral Rx should be used in treating corals that have parasites or other bacterial infections.
Additionally, it should be used as a prophylactic treatment before bringing live coral into your aquarium.
Do not add Coral Rx directly into aquarium.
Ingredients: Distilled Water, Proprietary Blend of Natural Extracts. (Coral Rx Industrial contains no distilled water)
