Is Furan-2 safe for mushroom corals ?

Hi, I ordered Furan-2 to dip my zoas, as they all have whites spots on them.

Unfortunately, one of the rocks is covered by both zoas and mushrooms... Will they survive Furan-2 dips ?

Not personally familiar with that coral dip...but I don't see any reason why it would harm mushrooms if it isn't harming zoas.

It's a kind of antibiotic... That's killing all bacterias... My goal here is to kill ZoaPox.

If used as a dip it shouldn't effect things. Just don't dump it into your tank, you'll un-cycle it.

Yes, for that point I know it....

The threatement is heavy dose into a dip for <30 mins each days for 3 days then 4-5 days waiting (relax in the main tank). Then repeat if not everything healty. I just recieved it by the mail and I think this is heavyly toxic product as it's carcinogen for humans... That's illegal here in Canada.

I still doubt it'll hurt the mushrooms. Just make sure you don't breathe it in.

I'll sniff a bit powder, won't put gloves, and drink the dip after the treatement...
I'll take precautions.

Do you think I can use the same dip solution for the first three days treatement ? I'll need a lot of product (water) to dip my big zoa/mush rock...

No don't use the same solution. Everything will be falling off into it upon death.

** i'll have to buy more then... It's made for 1 packet for 1 cup of saltwater... I only have 10 packets...

So I'll have to frag my big rock or have to buy 2-3 more pack for 10$ each...

Now now no need to be snarky lol.

I haven't found anything online that says it'll have a negative effect so you should be good to go.

I'd suggest maybe photographing the corals before the treatment so you have a comparison to check for any issues.

Good luck!
