Wherever we buy our coral from, most of us are concerned about the pests that may be introduced into our precious reef tanks. From red bugs to nudibranchs, and flatworms to snails, there are a variety of hitchhikers that can be attached to that lovely piece of coral you just bought. These hitchhikers have the potential to devastate an entire tank. Like most, I use a coral dip as one preventive measure to eradicate these pest before they are ever introduced into my system. As our hobby continually evolves, more and more dips are becoming available. We have homemade concoctions, commercially available dips from your LFS, and some not intended for use by the aquarium trade. After trying a variety of dips, I found the Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Kill to be a great and gentle coral dip. I am not hear to argue the pros or cons of this dip. However, for those of you have used this dip, I would like to ask... 1) What has your experience been while using this product? 2) What is your method/protocol for dipping your coral when using this insecticide as a coral dip? I will this start off in hopes to hear what others have to say. 1) As I have already stated, I have found the Bayer dip to be gentle but effective dip. With that being said, I have found this dip to be most effective on SPS corals. This dip is extremely effective against pest that attack our beloved SPS colonies, like the dreaded red/black bugs and flatworms. My experience with using this dip for softies and LPS is limited. I have only used this dip a few times in regards to introducing softies and LPS; however, all dips were successful and to my knowledge, no pests have been introduced into my system. 2) The method I use to employ this dip is about 4 ounces of Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer to one gallon of tank water. This concoction is mixed in a bucket, until it looks like the color of milk/skim milk. I let the coral sit in the bucket for 15 minutes. If I have several coral going at once, I use a small powerhead to constantly blow over the coral and knock loose any pest. Otherwise, I just use a turkey baster to blow off the corals every few minutes. I then quickly rinse (no more than a few seconds) the coral in a freshwater. This is literally a quick dip to remove excess bayer from the coral. The coral then go into another bucket that has tank water. Here the coral sit for another 15 minutes. After siting in just tank water for 15 minutes, I quickly rinse the coral with fresh tank water and place them into another bucket of tank water for 15 minutes. After this the corals are quickly rinsed with tank water again and then placed into the tank/quarantine system. Upon a successful dip session, I then rinse everything very thoroughly in vinegar and freshwater. Basically...Bayer Dip (15 minutes), RO/DI quick rinse, tank water dip (15 minutes), tank water rinse, tank water dip (15 minutes), tank water rinse, place in tank. As this is an insecticide, I take precautions to protect myself and do everything in my power to prevent any of this stuff getting into my main display as it can kill all your crabs, copepods, amphipods, shrimp, starfish, etc. I use dedicated tools and buckets that are only used in the bayer dip solution. I may be paranoid, but I would rather spend a few extra dollars for dedicated tools and buckets, rather than accidentally introduce this insecticide into my aquariums. I look forward to hearing about your experiences and the methods you use for the Bayer Coral Dip.
