    is it safe to use Prodibio in a reef tank to treat velvet. The system is 2000l and full of live rock fish soft corals, inverts and anemone. Trying to move the fish to QT is going to be also impossible which would obviously be first prize. Any experienced advice is welcomed, thanks

    That's my problem there are many mixed reviews. I may have to take the risk anyway. It's not cheap especially for the size of tank but considering the value of livestock probably worth it... if it works

    Velvet in your display:y13: Good luck, hope you can treat it. Just again shows importance of QT, much easier and cheaper to treat Velvet with copper or formalin in a quarantine, especially considering the value of livestock.
