View Full Version : Knopia(Jasmine) Polyps don't look good after Melafix Dip

Hi Everyone,
I'm very new to the hobby. My tank has been running for about a month and a half. After I dipped my Knopia Polyps in Melafix they look horrible. I'm not sure if they're dying, dead, or will recover and look great again.

My LFS told me that a friend of his dips his corals in it. I wish I would have never dipped it, or at least took the extra time to visit another LFS downtown to see if they had Coral Rx.

Below are the pictures and my current setup. Does it look like it is going to die? I appreciate any and all advice.

I don't know why they are not showing. If you right click the squares below the before and after you can open up in a new tab. Let me know if it doesn't work.

Why are you dipping a coral in Melafix? That wasn't very good advice from that LFS. Melafix isn't a coral dip, while it's reef safe in treating a tank, the concentrations used in a dip is more concentrated. You should get either Revive or Coral RX

You'll be lucky if your corals survive after being dipped in Melafix. I would go back to that LFS and have him replace your coral for giving you such bad advice. He probably won't but IMO it is something you should do. If you do nothing then they will think all is well.
