What are you treating and what inverts are in the tank?

Kent Rx-P is nasty stuff (much like Stop parasite), it's pepper based and quite an ineffective treatment overall. All the Poly-Ox does is reduce organics. Neither of these products will be affected by the use of UV but the Rx-P can harm the biofilter and fauna.

Cheers
Steve

I hope you are successful, products like these are usually quite hit and miss and rarely if ever eliminate the problem completely.

You really should consider a QT with a better choice in treatment. Especially with what the Rx-P does to invertebrates. I would also be concerned with the eel. Be very watchful....

Good luck
Cheers
Steve
