Dipping coral

Posted by Jason Dunham on

The Importance of dripping coral is to remove unwanted and dangerous pests. Keep in mind where it truly comes from so it is no fun to spend money just to discover a few days later that some hitchhikers came along the way. These include acropora-eating flatworms or even soft coral eating-nudibranches that are eating away your new piece. Not only that but it protects your existing corals in the case you had them spread throughout your tank eating the others away.

Along with that it refreshes and helps heal new coral after the stress of fragging and shipping by helping sanitize irritation or wounds the coral may have suffered – helping to reduce the chance of infection while your new coral acclimates to your tank.

 

STEPS 

-Choose your dip and have at least two containers  (one for the dip and one to rinse)
-Add both with your tanks water
-Add the recommended amount of coral dip to one container
-Bathe coral into dip mixture up to 15 minutes while stirring the water carefully to create flow to wash off anything on the frags.
-Take out frag and rinse them using fresh tank water
