    I have a pearlberry and a rose millepora that, for some reason, just do not want to cooperate. I have dipped them once before with sentinel and despite that, polyp extension and growth seems to be absent. They both encrusting a little bit inititially months ago when I first got them.

    Should I dip them again?

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    So you've tried different locations in the tank?
    Just no growth and no pe, tissue is fine?
    You know me I like to see an image. But I really see no harm in a longer Sentinel bath/rather than dip.

    Yeah, I fliped them from either ends of the tank. I'l get a photo tomorrow.

    Yeah, the encustig as stopped log ago and the encruting there just appears to be that thin initial layer.

    I dipped both for 10 minutes in sentinel some time ago when my Pink Leamonade wouldn't adapt. It has since adapted, encrusted, and beginning to branch.
