    Added flow and also introduced the proper dose (for a 30 gal tank) to my aquarium of the eXit after siphoning out as much of them as I could (not too many out and about). After about 45 min I added the proper 1/2 dose as per instructions. Its been about 1 hour total and 15 min since the 2nd dose and none of them seem to be dropping dead. What should I do next? Looking for any more advice...more eXit? thanks!

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Says to add the charcoal once you start to see the die off, and if possible do a 25% water change.

    Good Luck

    Not sure but I used full dose plus a little with no problems. I have about a 230 gallon plus 67 gallon sump. I figured probably 250-270 gallons total actual water so I put the whole bottle that is suppose to be for 300 gallons. I noticed them dying in about 30-40 minutes. I only did one treatment and they came back. Like usual I didn't listen. Now I have to spend the money to do a few more treatments.

    What size tank. I got a ton when I upgraded to my first 125 and picked up a melarunus wrasse. He literally ate thousands of them in 3-4 days problem solved. Well actually he hid for 7 days and the 4 days he was out ate them all, but you get the point. Not all wrasse will eat them, but I've been pretty lucky with natural predation.
