To people who have had experience with this now, how safe have u found this for your reef tank. And did it actually work?

Sounds a bit like snake oil to me, do you have a link to any literature to back up it's cure all claims?

Testing in QT is a good idea, just be ready to do a large water change if you need to, do you know what ails your fish?

I once treated sick fish in a FW setup of mine with this. Worked wonderfully. But never tried it on marine. Does it even say it's for marine too?

As for "healing all", very doubtful...

And i quote

"Well there is some evidence that aloe helps in skin damage cases, but limited benefits, however it won't cure anything in that long list if that's all it contains"

you never know, it might help......

right, back to the other search....

A copper based med might be better, i'll keep an eye, keep me posted i'm trying to find the name the "Prof" reccommends.
True, but what caught my eye is the "Natural" "Reef Safe" bit, and im allways open to new ideas, especially if it can cure sick fish. And @ Gallibore its slated for Marine Fish.

No harm in trying, let us know how you get on.

Hi Storm,I have used heal all successfully on my tank and have been impressed.It helped a yellow angel with Cloudy-eye and also a outbreak of velvet. No adverse affects (although I don't have coral), in fact I can actually notice an improvement in tank inhabitants allround, once added. Give it a go if you have it already. However, copper in a quarantine tank is also a good fix for white spot IMO.
