    @Dexter

    Wanted to ask advice on this product.

    I have a 400 litre tank.

    From the instructions, it states 1 spoon per 200l I think.

    Wanted to know if one bottle will be sufficient to treat my tank for the max 22 day term

    Helped clear WS and Velvet. No affects on my corals or good inverts. Just need to catch it early. If fish get secondary infections they would need to be quarantined

    to be honest I'm not convinced that it works. I tried it a while back and I still lost fish. Maybe I didn't catch the spot in time i don't know.

    It worked for me. I had some fish in a bad state and they past away during the treatment. Once the treatment was complete I havent seen a single spot on my older or new editions. Even if my new additions have been completely stressed by my sailfin no spots have shown on anyone in about 7 months now.

    Hi guys, I know this is a old thread but hoping someone can give me some advice.
    I noticed my.yellow tang had white spots on Sunday after a power outage, and temp dropped very fast to 22. Fish was not.eating and not swimming very well. Could not get my hand on Res Q Med at the time, A friend gave me half a bottle of heal.all by bio elite, which helped fish is now eating and swimming much better but still has spots it it. Unfortunately only had enough for 2 dosage and it is recommended to do a minimum of 7 dosage,
    My question is can I now start using Res Q Med as I have bought it today or how long doni wait for the previous medication to work its way out the tank.

    Run carbon for a day or 2 to remove any left over medication.
    Remember to remove the carbon again before starting with Res-Q-Med
