Directions for use
As a disease or wound treatment for marine fish and corals in the aquarium: Remove activated carbon and turn off protein skimmer. Shake bottle well. Using dosing cap on bottle, add 5 ml (1 tsp) per 10 U.S. gallons of aquarium water. Dose daily for 7 days. After 7 days, make a 25% water change. Replace activated carbon and turn on protein skimmer. The protein skimmer will collect excess foam. Be prepared to dispose of the foam as it will be significant. It may be necessary to turn down the protein skimmer for a few days until the foaming subsides.
As a coral dip: Corals may be treated in small containers and then placed in the aquarium. Shake bottle well. Using dosing cap on bottle, add 20 ml (4 tsp) per ½ U.S. gallon of aquarium water. Make sure the water temperature, pH and salinity are correct. Place the coral in the water for 3-5 minutes. Corals should be "shaken" under water to help dislodge worms. After a maximum treatment time of 5 minutes, place the corals into the aquarium.
