A must need! By Earl T on 2/17/14Earl 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 1/23/14Nicholas 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 1/14/14James 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 1/11/14Gob 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.
Good Stuff By Scott on 1/9/14Scott would recommend this product to a friendI interchange this with Revive. I dip all new frags before they go in to the tank. Havent had a bug issue at all and the corals dont seem to mind sitting in a bath of this for 10 minutes after acclimating. Hard to say though if its the Rx working or I just havent had any frags with bugs on them.
Works Fast By Kyfishguy on 12/10/13Kyfishguy would recommend this product to a friendI have had corals for awhile now, but recently purchased a frag in Tennessee. While in qt I noticed a flat worm on the base of the plug, so I jumped on Bulk Reef and ordered this miracle in a bottle. Followed the directions and more then a flat worm fell off. I decided to dip a few others and I was completely amazed of the creatures that came off while using this product. Never again will a coral go in my tank without dipping with Rx.
WORKS GREAT By Daniel on 10/31/13Daniel would recommend this product to a friendEffectively removes what should be, all without hurting the coral. I use the Pro, it's easy to mix and a little goes a long way.
Wish I had this from the beginning By Brian on 8/3/13Brian would recommend this product to a friendWhat a great product! Bought a few zoa frags today from a new store in Atlanta area. I used 17oz of tank water and 6 drops of Coral Rx concentrate and as soon as I dropped the frag in, immediately 3 hitchhikers came out. After 5 mins other small pests were in the bottom of the bowl. Rinsed the frags off and placed in tank and the zoas were opened back up beautifully in less than 15 min.
Never again will I trust anything going into my tank without using this first.
Good preventative measure By Andrew on 7/29/13Andrew would recommend this product to a friendI dip all my corals now with this stuff, and have definitely seen nasty things fall off. Even though it's hard to say that the corals would not have done as well without dipping, the peace of mind is well worth it. The 1 oz bottle is easy to use and should also last a long time.
great product By katlyn on 7/29/13katlyn would recommend this product to a friendThis product works really well for keeping unwanted spieces of nudi's, flatworms, red bugs, you name it. Just make sure you brush the coral and plug off with a toothbrush to get any eggs off so they don't enter your tank.
Effective and safe By Chris on 6/6/13Chris would recommend this product to a friendI've used CoralRX for a year, and am always amazed to see what it kills off my new corals. I've never seen any negative effects on corals, and it even smells great.
Brought my Dying coral back to life By Jacob on 4/24/13Jacob would recommend this product to a friendSo I bot this really nice lps but after I put it in my quarantine tank but it started to bleach out and was getting smaller so I dipped it and putti back in the tank and after a few weeks it had already grown a new oral disk and was thriving.

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.
