That's right ladies and gentlemen, Its a HUGE day in the reefing world and I feel as if I cannot contain this info any longer. The pest that has riddled our beloved acropora for years, will soon be a thing of the past. I am happy to announce that we have officially eradicated AEFW's with a in tank treatment that is 100% safe for all of our marine friends. This has been a ongoing project with our science group for the last eleven months and I can happily say that we have eradicated these terrors now numerous times with zero losses to any livestock including the most sensitive corals, inverts, stars, clams, fish, pods, macros, etc.

Treatment is very easy. Dosing one or two times per week ( depending on severity ) for 3 weeks.

On a side note, through the trials and errors of a project like this, we have also come up with the most gentle coral dip ( which is not SPS specific, but knocks every SPS pest off in seconds ). The best part, it is clear and pests instantly fall of the corals so you can see exactly what has come in on your corals. It is 100% human and animal safe, so you do not have to worry about using pesticides anymore in your dips

Keeping an eye on this thread, as people are really only just starting to use this. Will be interesting to see how it works in real customer tanks. It's also claimed to work on montipora eating nudibranchs.  If that's true, it'll be invaluable to any SPS keepers!

@Asco1104 keep us updated.  Do you have any AEFWs or MENs? Or are you using it prophylactically?

Some how Aefw got in, I’ve been holding the numbers down by basting them of and watching the wrasse eat them but there still there. I think they came in from some corals I got from a tank brake down.

I will start treatment tonight hopefully.

Looks like it works on MENs according to this thread:
https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/purge-for-montipora-eating-nudis.447789/

Think I will buy some, as I bought a plating monit that I found a couple of nudis on.  It's in QT (as everything always does for me), but so may people dip and dip and still get them.  May use this on everything for coral QT, as who knows what else it kills.

@Asco1104 did you see they updated the dosing instructions?  It's on their sales page:

Not seen any floating but there are lots of bits floating about, I’m not sure but I think it melts them.

How did you order it? There doesn't seem to be a shop on their website, but a list of distributors. They've ignored my email  :(

Ouch! £55!  It's under $30 in the US.  As it happens, I'm off for a holiday to Florida in a couple of weeks, so I think I'll try to source some out there.

Thanks:
