I still have a frag but I think it's from my other colony. The one I got from Kevin. Easy enough to frag

I will post some Blastos tomorrow. I have a couple really cool ones.

 

 

A couple people have asked about using Hydrogen Peroxide as a dip. I have used this dip at varying concentrations. I use the Hydrogen Peroxide you can buy at Walmart. I believe it says 3% on the bottle...anyhow the brown bottle with white cap.

 

This dip is fairly effective at killing some algaes, making flatworms panic (not killing), killing pods and a variety other little creatures. If you are using this dip to kill or control algae, this is not a bad dip. If you are dipping for pests, use the Bayer dip...much better. Also, if you are dealing with Bryopsis, this dip will help control it but it is not effective at killing it at any concentration. For Bryopsis, I recommend use Kent's Tech-M (Magnesium Supplement) to overdose (1400+ ppm) your tank. Overdosing any type of magnesium will NOT work. I have used plain old Magnesium at levels over 1600 ppm with no effect on Bryopsis...but Kent's Tech-M will work.

 

I typically use 25% Peroxide with 75% tank water. This concentration has almost no effect on corals. I let it bubble for 5 to 10 minutes, give it a good shake, rinse in tank water, and return to tank. I have accidentally left zoas/palys in this dip for over 4 hours and returned to tank...within 24 hours all polyps opened back up.

 

As a note...percentage of Peroxide over 50% did cause problems with corals. So, 50% was the highest concentration I tested...up to 50% didn't seem to bother zoas/palys. However, I would stick to 25% with most corals.

 

Hope this helps. :)

Happy Reefing

Orange Setosa

 

Nice setosa Drauka. Is it really red or is it lighting?

 

 

Its a really bright orange, had some tissue loss from a to fast lighting change but it is re-growing and seems to be growing pretty fast.
