- Coral Rx Coral Dip - 8 oz
Why does BRS recommend this?
Coral RX has proven its worth time and time again. With new corals from so many different sources, whenever we dip our corals here at BRS we almost always find some type of pest or critter that we do not want in our tank.
Coral Rx was developed to be safe for your coral while still eliminating parasites and bacterial infections. Independently tested for its efficacy. Contains no iodine or oxidizers with a formula that will remain effective for approximately 1 year after opening.
Follow instructions and do not add Coral Rx directly into your tank.
How to use Coral Rx Hobbyist Blend:
- Shake the 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.
Gentle on Coral, Tough on Hitchhikers By Kaylie on 4/30/2020Kaylie would recommend this product to a friendCombined with some water flow (I inserted a low flow powerhead into my dip bucket), I've been amazed to see hitchhikers fall off my frags (even those that looked clean and came from a reputable source). Corals themselves don't seem bothered by it at all.
Will never add corals without it By TJ on 2/23/2020TJ would recommend this product to a friendI add 3 drops of iodine also and have always had fantastic results. It annoys hitchhikers without annoying the corals much at all. Use in combination with a turkey baster for best results, you need to have water movement to get everything moving and out. Ive looked at some frags and thought it looks so prestine I almost wouldn't need to dip it BUT then just wait till you see what pops out. Pretty fun to use also. Highly recommend dipping all corals before adding to your DT.
Good Stuff! By Anthony on 9/15/2019Anthony would recommend this product to a friendI've just started adding corals to my reef tank and have been using Coral Rx to dip them first. I've bought corals from a couple of local fish stores, as well as from WWC, and every time I dip in Coral Rx I am always surprised at the sheer number of critters and cooties that start falling off. Some of them are large and easy and easy to identify like small bristle worms. However, a lot of it was so small I didn't know if it was just dirt or some sort of pest. So I dragged out my kid's microscope and started looking at the little specs and they appeared to be some nasty little parasites. This stuff works well!
Great product By Rickykline on 8/31/2017Rickykline would recommend this product to a friendLFS infested my tank with flat worms I use this on everything now. Won't let that happen again
Smells Great! By Dave on 4/20/2017Dave would recommend this product to a friendYou gotta dip, you gotta doodle, you need to use this product.
Great product By Carl on 8/1/2016Carl wouldn't recommend this product to a friendDoes the job it was meant to do. I would not put frags in my reef with out using it on them. I would recommend everyone to use it.
Third party shipping By Ben on 7/5/2016Ben would recommend this product to a friendProduct price and service were excellent. My one issue is the size of the box used.
You were not to know as normally this would not affect the shipping within the US but as I use a third party to ship to Australia and they charge based on cubic weight so a smaller, more compact box wouldve saved quite a bit of money.
