Just wanted to post this link as a resource.  I've never used this myself, but have been hearing about it for over a year or more.

It's what I use, seems much easier on corals that revive.

I tried Bayer for the first time tonight.  I'll try to remember to report back after I see how the corals acclimate in my tank.  It's been a really long time since I've added anything new.

It's what I use now.  On all coral.  When you search it, there are people that wonder why anyone uses anything else, but the recommended doses and dip time are all over the place.
I personally use about 5ml in about a cup or more of water.  I don't have sps, but want to make sure I don't get astarinas or nudibranchs.  There was a barnacle on my new torch that lived through the dip but died later, so maybe my dose is too weak.

I'm interested to know how this works out for you. I've done this in the past on SPS, specifically when I was fighting red bugs. I had fairly good results, but it took multiple dips to kill the bugs, I don't believe it kills their eggs so a second dip (or third in my case) is needed, I believe the same is true for acro eating flat worms. If the frags had either you'd see them in the dip after. I had mixed results with my SPS and if they liked it or not.

How about some shots of the new frags, get anything sexy?  invisible

I fragged some of my sticks and traded for some other frags.  I got a couple of acans which is something I never kept before.  I also got a couple of SPS frags.  Nothing too sexy yet, we'll have to see if they show growth and color over time.  They look like they have potential.  The original pictures of the colonies look good.

If you want to add anything Matt you're always welcome to come frag what you like.  That pink chalice just keeps growing.  I lose just about every other chalice that I add, but that one is really hardy and colorful.
