Awesome By Paul on 12/4/2014Paul would recommend this product to a friendI was/am new to reefing and using a product I never heard of gave me pause. I was very glad that I did order and use this, I couldn't believe what came off my corals. I won't add another coral to my tank without using this first. Great stuff.
excellent stuff By matt on 10/30/2014matt would recommend this product to a friendCoral rx is needed if you're running a tank with coral theirs no other way to put it. I used this stuff and you should've seen the stuff falling off my corals!!!! I'll never keep a reef tank without this.
Surprised By Alex on 7/19/2014Alex would recommend this product to a friendBought this as an afterthought with a bunch of other stuff. I thought, for $3 I might as well give it a try. Tried it on a piece of montipora digitata I got from the LFS with no real expectations. You should have seen the thing that came crawling out of that. Tons of tiny things, copopods, even a bristle worm. Now I dip EVERYTHING.
Good product By Sean on 5/26/2014Sean would recommend this product to a friendI use this EVERYTIME I bring corals home from my local fish store. It's simple to use and important. It takes less than 10 minutes and provides me with confidence that along with new corals, I am not adding unwanted hitchhikers to my tank that will destroy it. It's a bargain!
Favorite Dip By David on 5/20/2014David would recommend this product to a friendAs far as frags go....it's the best thing since sliced bread. Keep in mind, it does have a shelf life.
This worked very well By dale on 4/21/2014dale would recommend this product to a friendI had an Ich outbreak and to help eliminate it, I gave my live rock a bath in this and everything that I wanted on the rock was fine.
worked like a charm!
Best All Round Dip By Nelson on 4/3/2014Nelson would recommend this product to a friendI am pretty neurotic when it comes to what goes in my tank and I unfailingly dip every piece of new coral as,soon as I get home. Over a year ago I got some montipora eating nudibranches. No dip that I know of will kill the eggs. The hatched nudibranches are a different story and are easily and quickly killed by Coral Rx. I was able to dip my montiporas every few days for a few weeks and get rid of them for good. Coral Rx pro is my favorite dip and the only one I now use. The little 1oz bottle is very concentrated and will go a long way. I am still using the last bottle I bought over a year ago. Highly recommended product!
Works great By James on 3/19/2014James would recommend this product to a friendIt was very effective with no bad effects to corals.
A must need! By Earl T on 2/17/2014Earl T would recommend this product to a friendI dip all of my corals in Coral Rx, it kills nudibranch's and most pests. I have found that red flatworms can survive the dip however so I do two dips. I dip first in the Coral Rx and then in Flatworm Exit and I haven't had a problem since. You have to make sure that you want to remove the brittlestars away from the rock if you don't want to kill them, because it will. I don't have a single coral in my tank that hasn't went through the Coral Rx dip.
Amazing!!! By Nicholas on 1/23/2014Nicholas would recommend this product to a friendI own a LFS here in the San Antonio area and I do a ton of fragging and love this stuff. It I is an amazing product not only fragging but also to help bring coral back that's not doing to good. The money it will save you by saving your coral is worth it ten times over.
Must Have By James on 1/14/2014James would recommend this product to a friendCoral Rx is a must have for any reefer. It's great dip that's pulled many unwanted critters from new corals before they were added to my tank. I've also used it with great results to turn around corals in poor health. A good dip and solid chemistry go a long way toward keeping your reef healthy.
Safe and effective By Gob on 1/11/2014Gob would recommend this product to a friendI have used Coral RX many times and it seems to be both safe and effective. None of the coral I have dipped in it seemed to be excessively stressed from the treatment although I would recommend rinsing the coral very well before putting it in your tank. Although it doesn't instantly kill them, many pests will drop off the coral, particularly if you shake the coral after a few minutes or use a turkey baster to spray water on it during the dip. Also seems to be free of highly toxic chemicals which is a nice change from many aquarium products.

Is this also safe for sps.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Jodine,
The Coral RX dip will work just fine for SPS corals.

The 1oz Coral Rx Pro concentrated is more expensive than the 8oz regular. What are the differences? How much dip water will the concentrate make?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Phillip,
The Concentrated Coral Rx only uses 30 drops per gallon (roughly 2mL) of water instead of 20mL. This makes it in the ballpark of 10x more concentrated then the standard coral rx. Its generally best for folks making large batches at a time. If your only mixing 1g at a time I usually recommend using the standard coral Rx as its faster to measure out in small quantities.

Will this Coral RX kill aptasia? I have an SPS frag, and there is an aptasia between the base of the coral and the frag puck...
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Paul,
In my experience it works best for things like flatworms and red bugs. If you just have an aptasia I would use something like Aptasia X or you could mix some kalk to a bit of a slurry and apply it directly on top of the aptasia. Kalk isn't the greatest route for treating in the tank as it will greatly effect the pH of the tank, but treating a single aptasia external to the aquarium it would be just fine.
- Shake bottle of Coral Rx.
- Add 20 mL or 4 capfuls of Coral Rx to 1 gallon (3.8 liters) of saltwater from aquarium.
- Mix well.
- Using a small powerhead, keep the water moving and place coral in the coral dip.
- If you do not have a powerhead, gently shake coral in the coral dip.
- Keep coral in the coral dip for 5 – 10 minutes.
- After 5 – 10 minutes, remove coral and discard the coral dip.
- Do not reuse the coral dip as parasite may release toxins.
- Rinse coral with clean saltwater and return to aquarium.
- Do not add Coral Rx directly into aquarium.
Deal of the Day!
