    No no, to much sun for you lady! I'm saying INSPECT FRAG FOR PESTS - VISUAL INSPECTION IS KEY!!!!!!!!!!

    Healthy frag from tanks I know and trust= RX and flatworm exit dips, salt water dip, tank

    All others= rx dips, observe in QT, rx dip, saltwater dip, tank

    Nothing like tearing down a tank and learning the hard way to convince you

    We dip everything. We use a three dip method. Again like it's already been stated without qt dilping can't get everything. I don't have room for qt tank for both fish and coral.

    I use to just dip and that bit me so now I quarantine everything. I've found numerous things get through initial dipping including spiders, red bugs, black bugs, predatory crabs, aefw and Monti eating nudibranchs. All of those made it through Bayer/Coral Rx so now I still use those but I invested in quarantine tank just for new corals. Call me paranoid but I also quarantine everything else I get for 3 months as well, snails, crabs, algae you name it it all goes through.
