    Be careful with it. Some guys have had a tank crash when using it. The crash is not caused by the actual product but by the flatworms and nudis dieing and then fowling the water. So if you have a massive flatworm problem then you need to remove as many of them first before using it and also try and remove the dead ones ASAP before they can polute the water.

    A massive waterchange is recommended when done using this. I for one still plan on taking the reef out to get rid of other things, but will dip the zoas in this and qt. Good to know there is a reef safe option to kill these little nightmares

    Seen many a post on many a thread where people had success killing nudis with this by dipping it. I would never ever chuck it in my DT though

    Oh thanks for the vote of confidence :p

    Im gonna take all the zoas out, every last one, let them stay in qt, and hope whats left (if any) in the DT starve to death. I doubt the nudis would stray far from the colonies they munch on

RIP an soon the f#*ck2rs responsible will die....

    I used it. Don't know if it got rid of the nudis, because they had already munched the frag they were on. I didn't have problems with too many worms dying and making the tank toxic, because my tank is so new. I probably only saw 30 worms or so. I didn't dose as high as the instructions, though. I'm hoping it worked. It did work on the few flatworms in there. I've seen where people have wiped out their tanks with it, when they had a large amount of those flatworms in there. I didn't lose anything else.
