Clarify your dose, you are doing 3 per week? Started treatment today tank is fairly clean so I'm no poster child for advertisement but have some bryopsis and a random patch of cyano

The dosing on my bottle says 1 dose per week for dirty tanks, 1 dose per 2 weeks for cleaner tanks.

Probably not but you may see a pH drop.

Ha! I guess I never read the actual bottle. I was following what the UWC rep was telling people in another thread for those with dinos or really "dirty water" what ever that means. It's really not that much of a dose and doubt it hurts besides wasting more product I guess.

I glanced at the bottle and saw there was a dirtier aquarium directions and assumed he was talking about that.

On their other thread they claim you can OD on it, but I'm sure if you dumped a whole bottle in some funky things may happen.

I did my second dose last night. Doing Friday and Monday dosing. GHA is already starting to recede where I had let it grow long. The brown stuff its harder to tell doesn't look like its been affected yet. I have some red algae on a frag plug that also isn't affected yet.

Ive used this stuff for my Dino infestation. Dinos so bad they would cover sps frags in a few days and kill them. I have been dosing for 1+ months now @ 2x per week. Dinos aren't 100% gone but are 95% gone... good stuff..

Question, have you noticed any negative effects on corals or nems following dosing?

I don't have any nems, but can't say I've noticed any negative effects on my corals at all so far.

I added my first dose last night, my s. Gigantea showed no change but my golden torch closed up minutes after the dose.

The change that I noticed sense doing the first dose is that Euphilias are not opening up to the full extent and RBTA is not sprawling everywhere. SPS are unaffected completely. I have a couple of issues that might be too blame though. I overdosed dosed Aquavitro Ions (magnesium + trace) and had to switch from dosing my usual fusion 1 to Aquavitro calcification, which contains citric acid. I also had a frag of zoas fall off the rock and was carried away by a goby, which presumably means palyotoxin got released in the water.

I believe I see some improvement in the brown algae covering the top of the rocks so I added one more 15ml dose last night. I am running carbon and replaced the GFO. Skimmer seems to be pulling much more crud then previously.

I've not noticed any negative effects on my BTAs or corals. My one euphyllia frag is look better then ever. I about lost it due to an ATO overdose while I was away for 2 weeks about a year ago now. It's one of a few surviving corals from that event and for a while I didn't think it would make it. Looked near death most of this year.

This wasn't last night but the night before after cleaning the glass I think. Made the water hazy for a bit.

Could be indirectly related. Like the increase in film algae on my glass. Hard to say for certain.

Day 10 3x doses @ 60ml total

Will dose the 4th 20ml dose tonight

Seems like a small amount of progress again tonight. Had a lot of film algae on the glass tonight and cleaned it again.

At 24 hours the tank water with 5ml Vibrant added to it was interesting vs the tank water with no Vibrant added.

At 48 hours its rather impressive.

And I can't find that pm again so to reply to the original request.

No I have not found any kind of film forming on the top of the water with rodi in it and 5ml vibrant added.

I didn't get near enough time to go through all those like I wanted. I just ran out of time each night. But it was cool to see what I saw all the same and will share some of it. Wish I had the time but my eyes kept shutting on me each night.

There was a marked difference in bacterial counts though between those samples that had the extra overdose of the 5ml of vibrant added vs those that didn't get it.

I did try and see what I could at 4 hours, 24 hours, and 48 hours.
4hrs after adding vibrant I didn't notice much of a difference between tank water, tank water w/ 5ml vibrant added, and rodi w/ 5ml vibrant added.

Some photos

At 24 hours I could start to see a difference between the sample with 5ml Vibrant added vs the one with out.

Tank water 24 hours later no extra vibrant added looked normal and normal amounts of bacteria moving around. Algae still looking pretty good. Some dead but there was some at 4 hours too.

at 24hours with 5ml of Vibrant added seemed to have markedly more bacteria and the algae seemed less healthy if that makes sense. Still plenty of other life moving around.
