And whats so bad about that list? Its alittle conservative granted but not so bad. After all petsmart seems to think a goldfish in a half gallon bowl is ok.

Im kidding of course.

My big mistake was dosing my nano reef tank with furan-2 to get rid of zoa poxs.I saw on the internet that is was ok and safe. Wrong wrong wrong!! It only cost $8 and 3 days to kill $300 and 8 months of my time. Oh the learning curve

Its definitely not something you want in your whole system. Since I killed everything in the tank I did a little more research on furan-2 and its supposed to be used as a dip. No longer than 5 minutes

Will have to read up - I've just chucked it in the drawer assuming I won't need it until next summer. Must check it out properly.
