No. Copper will quickly kill inverts. A separate qt for corals would be best.
Marc Levenson (i.e. Melevsreef.com - Welcome! ) just wrote a good article on this subject. It starts on page 6.
I wonder if people will have different opinions after reading his article. http://reefhobbyistmagazine.com/downloads/pdf/version19.pdf
I do dip the corals in ReVive but don't do the Interceptor treatment. I have an 8 gallon Bio-Cube so that should work fine for a QT/treatment tank for coral.
Perfect. My SPS QT tank is a 28 gallon JBJ HQI nano. My softies and LPS are QT in a 20 gallon nano.
Nice self contained QT tanks.
Here's a couple of shots of my JBJ (primarily SPS) QT tank.
Sorry for the horrible photos. I have a hard time seeing with my camera. BTW, a lot of that rock is fake and some of them are eshopps frag caves.
To the left is what happens when your stupid fire shrimp knock your corn acro onto a Duncanopsis. Sigh. Oh well, the fire shrimp spawn almost every week and keep my corals fed.
This Lithophyllon coral barely survived being cooked at 98 degrees. It was brown and it's tissue was falling off. My QT tank is also a hospital tank and he's recovered well.
This Acan survived going up to 98 degrees in the 125. It was only about 1 1/2 polyps. Now look at how he's bounced back.
Very nice looking corals, congrats on the recoveries
I think getting a coral recovered is more rewarding than growing a healthy one into a huge colony.
So very true. Thought I smoked two with new LED's well they are looking great.
