red slime

has anyone used Red Slime Remover by Ultralife? I have red slime in a tank that includes a porcupine puffer, a huma huma trigger, 2 damsels, niger trigger and snowflake eel. I am just very reluctant to add anything since the fish are fine and happy.

Red slime won't hurt fish, but can kill corals...red slime remover is safe with all fish but the puffer and eel are sensitive to chemicals...I would suggest containing the maker or your lfs before use...

I'm guessing you're getting Cyanobacteria from inadequate filtration. All the fish you have are carnivores and produce a lot of waste.
