As you know I already tried a half dosage of 6 ml. Effect was quick and dramatic within 24hrs. The corals were bleached a little bit with montipora turning pink with a brown edge. Only effected certain corals, and did no harm, but I woud say an overdose could destroy a tank. ideal stuff to keep colour in new brightly coloured sps once a maintenance dose has been established and dosed every 10-14 days. Be careful !

Just a warning! to anyone going to use this stuff please be very careful!! i never looked this stuff up and was thinking it was going to be like the last bottle of zeo spure i had wich did not have the number { 2 } on the bottle anyway i did my usual and dosed nearly twice the full dose on the bottle thinking it would kickstart the system how wrong i was at one stage i thought i was going to lose a lot of sps because within 8 hours the tank looked luminöus and that is what most sps do before they blechìng anyway to cut a long story short all corals are going to be ok apart from the tank looking a bit fake please be very careful with this :!:

What has happened to just keeping you water quality top notch and just feeding you corals.
The Marine world seems to be going chemical mad. Is it really worth it..

Busted.. :lol: :lol:

Never one for the chemical route. Too thick and lazy to try it..
Always went the natural route and never had a problem. Things only fewked up when I tried those pellets.

it expells the old zooxanthellae algae from the coral bringing the colour out but if over dosed it will take all the zooxanthellae from the coral and it will kill it (in short takes out the browns and you will then get much brighter reds blues ect)

Here comes my normal dumb ass question :roll: Don't the corals need the zooxanthellae algae to survive so why would you want to get rid of them or is it only the 'old' algae that you get rid off.
