    It sound almost the same as coralRX dip... It also contains some plant extract like aloe vera & tea tree oil... Also kills most of the pest stated by RPS...
    I have found coralRX to work on all living critters, but it hasnt proven itself against algae yet (as it promises).
    Be sure to let us know if you manage to get some of the RPS in SA. Would love to see its effects on pests!

    yes but coralx will not kill the eggs and that's why this sounds like a good product but don't think it's in SA yet maybe sponsers can help us out with this ;)

    Sounds good.
    I wonder if reefaquatics can perhaps help out. They always manage to import these kind of things... @Andre@ReefAquatics ?

    If this product can work for AEFW eggs, it would be the first product to have real success in this area... They can be real tuff little buggers once they are in your tank!!!

    Reefers, you've spoken and we reacted !

    After combing the net, this product still seems very new, there are some good reviews out there, but I cannot seem to find anything that specifically details the eradication of AEFW's eggs, although mentioned in the product detail.

    Seems to be effective on numerous other pests.

    I've provisionally placed an order for 25 4oz bottles, pending the manufacturer provides me with some more reviews on the effectiveness of this product.

    Anyone here in SA suffering from AEFW's please pm and we could provide you with a sample for a review in return.

    We keep you updated ...

    Thanks @Andre@ReefAquatics for your great service.
    Will you please keep us updated when you get it in stock? Would love to order a bottle from you when you get them.

    Oops, sorry, in this forum I promised to bring in the product, so I did not see it advertising, just more like confirming that the product is now in SA, as asked to be updated by the reefers earlier in this thread.

    Sorry, please delete !
