I will definitely read up on it first. With the experiments they are doing it sounds very promissing. Do you dip your frags in pure peroxide or a percentage of the peroxide mixed with aquarium water. Just curious because the stuff you buy for that seems to expire before you can use it all.

No, but I have. I diluted it but don't remember how much. It really eats the algae away, but the corals really don't like it. I remember the guy I get my coral and fish from saying he dosed peroxide in one of his tanks to keep algae down and he had tons of coral in there. I will have to ask him about it next time I see him if I remember. As far as coral dip goes, I'm pretty satisfied with the cheaper seachem coral dip (iodine). I used the coral rx before as well and really liked that stuff, but the price and as you stated shelf life isn't the greatest. I didn't even use a third of the bottle before it was no good. But it was a very nice product.

Once my seachem is gone I'll probably go with the Bayer insecticide. You can get it at home depot and Lowe's. Seems to be the cheap and effective way. My buddy (FTS owner) dips everyone of his corals that come in in this stuff. Here is a little article from Cherry corals that I found on it. This is the route I would suggest.

Came in the office this morning and no signs of red slime (cyno) anywhere. Now to do a water change and take out the airstone.

Looks like its coming along. Do you run a skimmer or just do water changes on it? That's alot of foam on the surface.

I do run the skimmer occassionaly. Th3 wayer level was low in the back so it was blowing air plus i had a airstone in there during the treatment. I did a water change on my lunch break. Here is a better picture.
