    Looking for specifics on which Bayer Advanced to buy to use as a dip. There has to be almost 10 different varieties!

    This exact one should do the trick:


    Works great for me.

    Cool. Same one I picked up. What are the dosages?

    Most people do something like 10ml for every 4 ounces and a 10-15 minute soak.

    I do 25 ish (to be honest I eyeball it half the time) ml in a cup that contains roughly 12 ounces of tank water, and a 10 minute dip.

    I rinse in a different cup of clean tank water.

    I haven't lost a frag, and it does leave a surprising amount of dead things in the cup when you are done.

    What kind of corals have you dipped?

    Acros, zoas, general LPS, softies?

    A decent variety. A ton of zoas, various euphyllia, acans, chalice, ricordea, and more recently some acropora, millepora and montipora.

    I try to dip everything that comes in on a frag plug or piece of rock if I don't think it will hurt it.

    Thats really cool. I think im gonna switch to bayer once my bottle of revive is up.

    Hear its more effective and less harsh on corals

    I agree, just have been nervous about getting the right mixture so I don't do damage to my corals...

    I recently got this.... and from reading a lot around, I settled with 5ml per cup (236ml) for 5-10min. The only exception would be smooth skin acros which people suggested a 2-3min dip.

    That stuff creeps me out...I'm sure I works good, but gross stuff to say the least. Do people just pour it down the drain when they are done, or is there a better way to dispose of it?

    Just wondering if aptasia will survive this dip?

    I think aiptasia would survive the bayer dip nav.

    Most of these dips knock off small invertebrates like nudibranchs, spiders, flatworms, red bugs.

    An aptasia is an anemone. More related to a coral than to a flatworm. Although we see it as a pest, its more of a coral.

    Good point Michael. With the swap coming soon, I'm interested to know how others in the club deal with frags that come with aptasia?
