- UltraLife Red Slime Stain Remover
Remove red slime from your corals and invertebrates. UltraLife Red Slime Remover is made up of natural cellular matter, select biological accelerators and supplements are proven effective in removing Red Slime.
Due to increased biological digestion of organic solids, we recommend increasing your O2 levels via the addition of airstones prior to and during treatment. No need for water changes or removal of carbon filtration.
Dissolve one level spoonful for every 15 gallons -- one container treats up to 300 gallons.
Note: For best results, DO NOT turn off UV Sterilizer or Ozonizer. Continuation of protein skimming is recommended, but may require adjustment.

Red slime remover By Joseph on 5/11/2018Joseph would recommend this product to a friendMy tank was covered with red slime I have a 20 gallonFusion nano are use this product as recommended are used it one day and then 48 hours later used it again and it cleared it up
Good and Bad By Luke on 3/23/2018Luke would recommend this product to a friendProduct works without a doubt. Used it before. I had an outbreak of cyano again so I decided to use again. This is what happened.
I did 90% of recommended dose. Put in air stones to the tank but took skimmer offline. Mixed up the powder and slowly dumped in my system. Immediately all my SPS closed up followed by 90% of all my coral. Next morning I woke up to a dead foxface. Two of my acropora colonies are toast and looking like there will be more... obviously this is a lack of oxygen in the system because I had a fish die as well.
If you use this, I strongly recommend doing whatever it takes to get your water highly oxygenated the day before the test. I believe that since the dying bacteria in the tank due to this product working, sucked too much oxygen out of the tank and caused a mini crash. It does without a doubt get rid of cyano. But if your not careful you can crash your system like what happened to me.
Please note I did everything I did the first time I used this product with 100% success. But this time it sent my system into a mini crash.
Worked great By willy on 2/13/2018willy would recommend this product to a friendWorked great
A message for who said it doesn't work...It is work. By tthouston on 2/9/2018tthouston would recommend this product to a friendBefore you dose Red Slime Remover,
1- you need turn off Carbon reactor or remove carbon filter if you have it. The carbon will take RSR medicine out of your tank.
2- You still can using skimmer BUT you need open lid or let it drain back to your sump by the drain hole under your skimmer cup. Do not collect the dirt and throw away as normal.
3- To avoid the ton of micro bubble send back to your display tank, you can use FEW of black foams at middle compartment to block the bubble from the skimmer compartment through return compartment.
4- This is optional, you can using filter socks from the drain to collect all the dirt, algae die off from display tank.
Note: You need to check daily on your skimmer, it should overflow all day. If it is stop overflow, then it is not right....something was remove RSR medicine.
After your tank clean, you need to run carbon creator again and all the bubble from skimmer cup should drain to the bucket. All the RSR medicine will take out of your tank within 8 hours.
Works but may have caused some isolate coral issues By Jay on 4/23/2017Jay would recommend this product to a friendDosed according to the directions and cyano was gone within 48 hours. However, micro bubbles from the skimmer ensued for the next 5-7 days, during which my monti setosa and orenji monti started bleaching a bit. Yet, my monti caps were unaffected and my purple haze monti frags seem fine. Also softies in the tank were fine. Happy that the cyano is now gone, but bummed about the affected montis noted above. Would still recommend the product. I'd just keep a close eye on corals the week after dosing.
It works. Skimmer needs adjusting. By JADReefer on 10/25/2016JADReefer would recommend this product to a friendI have suctioned red slime from my rock weekly for 4 months and never got ahead of it. I dosed Hydrogen Peroxide starting at 1 ml per 20 gallons of tank volume and increased to 1 ml per 4 gallons of tank volume over 1 week and continued that dose for 2 week. Along with the weekly suctioning It definitely helped but did not eliminate it. I dosed Ultra Life's Red Slime stain remover and it was gone in 48 hours. 3 weeks later it is still gone. After 3 weeks my protein skimmer is now back to full speed. It definitely makes your skimmer got nuts. It required multiple adjustments and several overflow experiences.
Best Prduct Ever By Kelly on 10/2/2016Kelly would recommend this product to a friendThis product is amazing! I had red slime moving all over my tank. It had started getting on my coral and everything. It took two doses and it was gone. It's been three weeks now and I haven't seen any traces of any red slime. This is really an amazing product!

It works By Jason on 6/26/2016Jason would recommend this product to a friendEasy instructions. Very effective. Like others have mentioned, just watch your skimmer to avoid an overflow etc.
Does this product have any sulfur in it? I'm starting red sea algae management, by dose pump, but can't use products with sulfur.
The ingredients of this product are not provided so I cannot say for certain if it contains sulfur or not. What I can say is that due to the small amount used when treating cyano it is very unlikely that an appreciable amount of sulfur would be added to the system should it be present in the product.
I hope this helps!
