Great to hear. I've got a nem in my display that needs cipro, but I cant get him out. I might give the full tank treatment a go.
For what its worth i used the in tank cipro treatment outlined by aquabiomics in the thread already shared here mainly for my nem tank. A few of my nems were showing signs of bacterial infection and i thought this may be an option instead of pulling them all.Nems are different for dosing. Not sure if the bjd dose would suffice for nem treatment. Never tried it at that low of a dose for them.
Ugh. Thanks for the info. I guess I'm going to have to get a bit more aggressive to get this guy out if I want to save it.For what its worth i used the in tank cipro treatment outlined by aquabiomics in the thread already shared here mainly for my nem tank.

I used the recommended dose but instead of the 3 doses i dosed everyday for 7 days. I found that nothing was harmed but i dont think it did much for most of the nems. One BTA showed noticeable improvement and healed but the gigs and mag did not so i had to pull them. I treated them as outlined by orion with cipro in a HT.
BJD, brown jelly disease, is a bacterial infection of the coral. Typically euphillia are the ones affected. It is also similar to elegance disease. The bacterial infection causes the coral to slime heavily and the decaying tissue from the infection, mixed with the slime is brown and thick.I can't tell if this is the so-called "marine snot" that occurs due to excess dissolved carbon, does it occur elsewhere in the tank? If so, using activated carbon and eliminating organic additives like vodka will fix it.
There may be some slight bleaching, but some light can be enough light. If it does start poking back out and expanding, even a normal light bulb will provide enough light. 100w equivalent light bulb will sustain a mag nem during treatment.I should mention that the QT tank is technically meant for fish, so it doesn’t have any special lighting besides the stock Top Fin lighting the tank came with. Will this be a problem or should it suffice? Also, I currently have the torch in indirect lighting/flow. Should I move it, or is it okay as is?
There has been success with chemiclean and bjd. It is not for algae, as cyano is a bacteria.In the DT, I have two frogspawns that are slightly closed, and an indo torch that is doing well. Should I not worry until there’s an obvious problem, or would it be wise to treat them with something?
Also, as far as in-tank antibiotics go for the QT, I have chemiclean, which appears to be more of an algae killer than anything. Would it have any use against BJD?
The torch looks a lot better than it did yesterday. I think I’ll do another hydrogen peroxide dip today and see where that goes. I don’t see that much brown jelly today so it’s possible that I removed most of it yesterday. At this point, it may just be tissue recession from all the stress and disease. There are some areas that melted back but so far it looks like I may be able to savage some of it. I’ll keep you updated on the progress!
