    Just a though.

    Prodibio Prodibio Spots and Velvets can be used for Whitespot treatment.

    Fot tanks under 100L on day 9, and for tanks bigger than 100L on day 6 you stop the treatment and add a vail of BioDigest_Start

    Including BioDigest_Start obviously means that the treatment greatly impacts your bacterial colony in your tank. I doubt that it will be safe to use if your main filtration depends on a DSB.

    Anyway, what would the impact be on Orca cubes. The cubes do depend on yeast, instead of bacteria. But could there be an issue?

    That is correct. Will affect and bear in mind that Ocra cubes are yeast based and dosing the biodigest start will not do anything for the cubes....

    It does have a very interesting composition

    The vials A and B contain per mL:
    • 0.10 mg of 6,9-Diamino-2-ethoxyacridine-DL-lactate
    monohydrate (ethacridine lactate)
    • 0.05 mg of Hexamethylpararosaniline chloride (crystal
    violet)
    • 1.25 mg of N,N,N′,N′-Tetramethyl-4,4′-diamino
    triphenylcarbenium oxalate (malachite green oxalate)
    •0.10 mg of 3,7-bis(Dimethylamino)phenazathionium
    chloride (methylene blue)


    Would also say not reef safe​
