    Also heard of it.

    Apparently good for montipora nudis. Another good one for zoas is peroxide.

    bump on old thread..any idea where to get Bayers insect spray or exact equivalent in south Africa?

    planning on doing a solid sps dip when transferring corals to new system as preventative measure
