i have yet to overcome them ( still dipping and qt) but im using "fluke tabs" .. at 1 pill per gal of tank water... keep water flowing in the container as to keep the med suspended.. ( use a small ph) keep them in there for 20-30 min.. then rinse off and place in qt.. do this 1x a week.. for 5 weeks +.... this is what i am currently doing.. i have yet to see real improvments but it's only been 3 days... again.. i have not yet have 1st hand experience on this matter ... so dont hold me responsible for what may happen...

i was thinking about a camel shrimp. They say a six live wrasse and i have one but nvr see near the corals. none of mt other corals have them and all doing fine. I let the coral go too many eggs and such too a tip to frag

ive used a product called ReVive by two little fishes with success. used as a 30 to 50 minute dip. then shake. repeat weekly. after three treatments they should be gone.

Second to revive, great product. Corals takes dipping very well. Good luck

Revive is working well for me. I used double strength TMPCC dips to treat going into and out of QT. But some got through into the frag tank where all my frags are now. This is even after only taking frags with no eggs or bite marks.

So I'm now using Revive. The big ones came off in 30 sec, writhed around for 2 min or so then were still. Now after 3 weekly treatments I've seen no new eggs or damage. One caveat. My latest bottle seems to have been a different concentration. My corals did not take it as well as previous bottles. Lost half my Elias blue and have probably lost the Candlelight(bleached but still have polyps.)
