Introduction to Sundial Snails: Heliacus variegatus is commonly known in the aquarium hobby as a Sundial snail or box snail. These nocturnal snails are known Zoanthid predators. What a Sundial snail looks like:These snails are typically white and black, occasionally...
Introduction to Filamentous Hair Algae (Bryopsis):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. Often, the nitrates and phosphates are not...
Introduction to Red Flatworms:Red Flatworms go by several different names; Convolutriloba retrogemma, red planaria, rust flatworms, and some refer to them as just flatworms. These terms are loosely used to describe flatworms that proliferate rapidly in aquariums with...
Introduction to Rapid Tissue Necrosis (RTN) and Slow Tissue Necrosis (STN): Tissue Necrosis and Slow Tissue Necrosis are used to describing an event of tissue coming off the coral or the coral turning white, which is known as bleaching. The speed at which this happens...
Introduction to Zoanthid Eating Nudibranchs: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.It is important to keep these parasites out of our aquaria....
Introduction to Bristleworms:Bristleworms is loosely used to describe all Polychaete class marine worms. It is the Pherecardia, Hermodice, and other related species that most aquarists need to be concerned about.These species are also known as Fireworms because they...
Introduction to Montipora Eating Nudibranchs: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.Montipora Eating Nudibranchs feed on the tissue of corals from the...
Introduction to Zoanthid Eating Spiders: 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. There are more than 1300 known species, and almost all of them are...
Introduction to Acropora Eating Flatworms (AEFW):An Acropora Eating Flat Worm (AEFW) is a flatworm that only effects Acropora, but does not affect all Acropora species. Some Acropora species are more prone to infection than others. Acropora species that have shorter...
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:
- Coral Rx was the most effective treatment…
- Coral Rx performed well as a coral dip, and it would be advantageous for coral aquaculturists, wholesalers, retailers, aquariums, and hobbyists to use this product when quarantining newly purchased corals.
- Chemical treatments are utilized as a preventative protocol used to eradicate flatworms before they are introduced into an aquarium. These chemical treatments are referred to as a coral dip.
- 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 – a different type of coral dip
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.
Removes many of the “hard to deal with” coral pests like Acropora-Eating Flatworms, Montipora-Eating Nudibranchs, and Zoanthid-Eating Nudibranchs.
Promotes Coral Health – Hard on parasites yet easy on corals making it a perfect prophylactic treatment protecting your coral investment. Whether or not you quarantine your corals before putting them in your aquarium, a dip in Coral Rx decreases the probability of adding a parasite into your aquarium eco-system.
How to use
Coral Rx can be used in treating many types of live corals; soft, LPS and SPS.
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.
