    Would you recommend this to a reef tank? I have white spot in the tank, and dont have the option to medicate in a separate tank....

    I've recently used it in a reef at half the dosage (cleaner shrimps, turbos, mixed sps, lps and few zoas) , had no problem at all but the treatment took 10 days to work...it all depends really...start with 1/2 dose and up it gradually over the next few days to see how the reef is reacting to it...it contains no copper.. a lot of our clients experience great results dosing it this way.

    If the fish are still eating then just feed them lots of food with immuvit and lipovit, dose medication as a last resort. All my fish got white spot a couple of months ago when I added a powder blue. Just soaked all their food in immuvit and lipovit, after three days they were clear. Haven't had white spot since.

    Tropic Marin® IMMUVIT activates the immune defence in fish and supplements food with essential B vitamins. Research studies have shown that the betaglucane contained in yeast naturally activates the immune system of fish and therefore stimulates the resistance of fish to diseases. The water-soluble B complex vitamins contained in yeast and spirulina ideally supplement every food. Vitamin B12 in spirulina arouses the feeding behaviour in fish. Furthermore, spirulina also contains asthaxanthin which improves the colour and fertility of fish

    Tropic Marin® LIPOVIT means concentrated energy for saltwater fish. A composition of high-grade marine oils provides fish with the very nutrition needed to cope with stressful situations and ward off diseases and parasites. Specifically the omega 3 fatty acids contained in marine oils are vital to saltwater fish. They prevent the dreaded head and lateral line erosion (HLLE) disease. There is no growth or sense of well-being for fish without these polyunsaturated fatty acids.

    The composition of oils contained in LIPOVIT allowed the content and selection of vitamins to be specifically adapted to meet the needs of fish. In this way the very dose of vitamins that fish need is supplemented. The added vitamins C and E protect the cells of fish from the damage of free radicals. Panthotenic acid (vitamin B 5) plays a central role in many metabolic processes; it is needed for the immune defence and reduces the mortality rate of young fish. Fish benefit from the natural carotenoids contained in LIPOVIT that fulfil a function similar to vitamins. In addition to enhancing colour, carotenoids also boost the fertility of fish and their readiness to spawn in particular. Successful spawning is directly correlated with the carotenoid content of fish. The garlic oil contained in the product helps the defence mechanism of fish to ward off parasites and it makes their food more attractive.

    Last but not least, with Tropic Marin® LIPOVIT fish are better able to make use of the nutrients. And this, in turn, reduces the burden on water caused by nitrate and phosphate.

    I use Lipovit and Immunvit and can only sing their praises - The lipovit has cod liver oil and garlic extract - When a fish gets white spot the best thing is to feed them well and build up immune system. If they are very bad then a FW dip and QT is a must. I also add lemon juice in my homemade food and blended garlic. If you get a fish with Oodinium then you need to act fast and QT all the fish with Myaxine or Cuprazine
