Reef Dip™ contains elemental iodine complexed to a protective slime
coat for safely and gently disinfecting corals. It is effective against
bacteria, fungus, and protozoans. It may be used prophylactically
(without evidence of disease) or to remedy diseased specimens. It is
safe to use with both stony and soft corals. It is also safe for
anemones and polyps.
Reef Dip™ provides a protective slime coat complex that
covers the coral, holding the iodine in contact with the infected site
for extended periods of time. In addition, the slime coat prevents
infection from re-rentering the site.
Do not use in the aquarium. Use in a separate container. Remove 4 L (1
US gallon) of water from the source aquarium to a container suitable for
dipping. Add 5–10 mL (1–2 capfuls) of Reef Dip™ and mix. Place coral
specimen in dip for 15–30 minutes, depending on severity of problem. In
very severe cases, a double dose may be used. With clear and accessible
lesions, dip concentrate may be painted on lesions directly before
placing in dip. Observe animals during treatment for evidence of adverse
reactions such as excessive sliming.
