    I've had a few frags for 8+ weeks and they show limited to no PE.

    I dipped a pink leamonafe awhile back that was suffering the same fate. It now has full PE.

    I used Sentinel. Should I do the same with the milli, prostrata and pearlberry?

    Are you using an iodine dip? I've had a montipora frag for quite a while now that's been refusing to open and I might try whatever you're doing.

    I searched around for sentinel but couldn't really find anything. Could you give me a link to somewhere I could buy it or get some more information about it?

    It's a dog medication. Must get it from a vet.

    Wonder if I should do this with my red planet. Very little PE but it's growing.

    Is there any reason you prefer sentinel?

    I have used coralrx before but nothing else so just wondering. I have never tried it so have no opinion or experience on it. Just another thing to learn. I will have to ask the vet if I can get some when I bring her back to have her stitches/staples removed.

    I thought this had some good info on dips
