Blue Life Blue Vet Rx Coral Rx is a broad spectrum antibacterial remedy for all corals, including the treatment and prevention of bacterial diseases common to fresh cut or injured corals. Coral Rx is safe for use in reef aquariums and will not harm beneficial denitrifying bacteria.
Prior to Use: Turn off skimmer and discontinue using activated carbon and phosphate remover for 72 hours; they may be resumed after 72 hours, but all other chemical filtration should be removed during the course of treatment. Filter socks are recommended to aid in cleaning the aquarium. Do not use if you have macroalgae or a refugium. Allow 10 to 14 days for results.
Directions: It is highly recommended that all corals be treated in some form of quarantine system and that the maximum contact time with Coral Rx be allowed, avoiding resistance build up. It is recommended flow be increased during treatment, however it is important to avoid flow directly aimed at corals. In addition to strong, passive water flow, it is advised to lower light intensity if possible, but it is not absolutely necessary.

Dissolve thoroughly and pour solution into the aquarium. Discontinue the use of carbon and ozone during the treatment period. Do not dose in the evenings when lighting is turned off. After desired results are visible, perform a 25% water change and resume the use of mechanical filtration. If symptoms persist repeat dosage again.
Note: Also, it is important to perform a 25% water change after every dose. In case of accidental tank overdose, the medication can be removed using Clear Fx Pro.
