    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    You need to manually remove as many as possible prior to treatment. Upon death FW release a toxin. The larger the population left to treat the greater the risk of adverse reactions. Although this might be harder for you as your lucky (sarcasm) enough to have the type of FW that likes to reside on corals. Remember what you see is a small percentage of what is actually in the tank.

    Read and follow instructions carefully.

    Prepare for a large water change after the treatment and have new charcoal on hand to change out.

    My snails, hermits and starfish looked really bad during and after treatment. It took about 3 days for them to return to normal.
