I had an awful infestation of it in my biocube. Couldnt beat it with water changes and feeding adjustments. Finally went ahead and used chemi clean and it was gone the next morning. hasn't been back since.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It is invert and reef friendly. I just did a water change the next day to get the organics out and it was fine. I have shrimp and snails and hermits in the tank and they didn't have any trouble.

I used it as a last resort and it worked just like that. It was truly amazing. within a few hours you could see the bright red turning dark red and stating to peel off the rock.

I will look into it. Manufactored by? And I traded my pj cardinals for 2 Bengaii. They looked like a pair in the store... Fingers crossed! Also, thinking ahead to corals...
I WILL have acropora. I do not want zoas, mushrooms or another beginner fast spreading corals that will be impossible to remove later.
Any ideas?

Glad to hear it! Much better than adding a chemical to the tank.
