Honestly the FW
dip is not a bad thing and is actualyl a good thing. Most people that are schooled in dealing with zoos will always use a QT tank and will typically dip their zoos in a FW
with iodine solution. THe Iodine is not a requirment but helps.
Go check out some of the other boards out there if you don't beleive me. I had to actualyl use another board to get the best in formation on FW
I had a nudi problem. They were eatign my zoos and they came in with my zoos. I don't have a qt tank and did not know abotu the FW
dips. So I had to use the FW
dip method to help rid my zoos of the nudis.
What you need to do is make sure the FW
is at the same temperature and the same PH as the saltwater. But you do use FW
. YOu put the zoo in there for about 2mins and you shake it and you can see the nudis just fall off and die. True that eggs don't fall off but you have to search for them or keep doing the dips. Zoos are quite hardy and I did abotu 6-7 dips and the zoos did fine.
Do what you will. I am jsut offering my opinion and what may others think is a good idea to rid a new coral of possiable hitchhickers. It does not work for everyhting but it will help with a bunch of stuff you would rather keep out of your tank.
