Take a bowl with Saltwater from your tank and add amount that bottle says and set coral in it for about 10 to 15 mins and then return coral to tank and water down the drain. I usually add 6 drops of lugol`s to about 1/2 gallon of saltwater.

If it was my coral I would put a cap of it in a bowl of saltwater from your tank and set it in there for 10-15 mins. But it is not my coral so I would wait to see what the others say first. Let me ask you why do you need to dip him anyway?

Have u been readin this post? XD

I'll just sum it up. "All" of my zoos had whitish spots (look like ick but except on zoos). Recently, they have developed into flatter patches. Now the zoos' stalks don't look as health as they did before. I suspect of a fungal infection.

That's y i want to try FW or Iodine dip.

Ok But dont do the FW dip. Do the iodine dip. I believe the FW dip will hurt it. Sorry about not getting the drift. Yesterday was a rough day. Again do the iodine and Good Luck
