Will Salifert Flatworm Exit work well as a dip?

I have a small holding tank and I'm seeing some flatworms on some of the coral - I have SFE in the house and was wondering if it would work well as a dip or if it's better to just treat the whole tank.

I was planning on taking down the tank.

Thanks.

I've never used it as a dip but I assume it will work just the same. Iodine and bayer insect killer dips will flatworms too.

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

Did someone mention Alto ???

CoralRX, if your serious about your coral, best product to use IMHO.

Yeah... it's just what I had on hand though.


I went ahead and set up a dip with the SFE - and it seems to have worked pretty well. I only used a half gallon of water and doubled the dosage... the flat worms fell right off. I've moved the corals over to a another tank and I'll watch them for while before I move them into the final tank they are going in.

Bayer insect killer .5ml/2cups water. Instant death to just about any pest. Stong big ones like nudies just mix it stronger. $12 at home depot and it will last you for a century.

I have coral rx but it takes a while to do it's thing and smooth skin acro's don't do well with it.
