    OK been pondering if I should post this, (everything in my tanks should be 1000 %) unfortunatley that is not the way life works.

    After introducing the new fish, the bonzai regals picked up some White Spot so I thought as I am stocking the product, let me give it a try. ALL I can say is wow .

    4 doses later, no WS. Being a herbal based product, it is reef safe, helps with de - stressing fish, immune stimulant etc.

    I would really reccomend this , especially if adding new fish to a system

    Do they stay small for long or do they just become normal regals?

    damn i think munier got whitespot form stressing about his Powder blue's whitepsot:p

    What a mission it was to catch that scopa that was harassing his PB,we had to remove all his LR(in a 900 deep tank) then had to chase himn around still,but he is now in the sump

    LOl Maj, maybe munier gave the fish WS ! Strange behaviour as in my experience Scopas will most likely only bother other Zebrasoma species...

    TRUE Frans. I'm could be giving myself the WS with all this stress... the PB was double teamed by the scopa & YT, actually both attacking him...I have actually reduced the light time, we re-arranged the LR, and so far it seems OK. Will try your treatment tonight once Maj gets back from you.

    Is it just once a day you add this for the 4 days, of what do you recommend?
