    Treat most medicines as not reef safe, only herbtana and Artemis , @HenkHugo will confirm

    Herbtana and Artemis work well if you follow the instructions
    I use them all the time

    I have used this in my tank but I do not have any SPS or clams. I have softies and some torches. I do have shrimp and snails.

    I did not read the instructions properly. Make very sure that you have lots of oxygen in the tank. Put in extra air stones. I lost quite a few fish due to lack of oxygen. They were not infected when they died. Only my clowns had some white spot.

    I have not had any more white spot after completing the treatment.

    This was my experience and does not mean that you will have or not have any problems using it.

    How many fish do you have? And in what size system?

    Only effective whitespot treatment is to remove the fish from the infected environment. That is the only method that is guaranteed

    Like what? Easy to comment when you haven't used it, or work for a lfs? Claims like this need to be substantiated with fact or proof

    Its always easier to blame a product in stead of your failure in understanding the product, how it works, what it kills, and how it should be used. Be it red slime remover or whitespot eraser.
