Just curious. I have been using CoralRX to dip corals and it works amazingly well. The last time I used it, on 4 frags, I killed so many pods, which made me sad. Not a big deal of course, but, if I ever dip and there's something really cool that I want to save, is there a way to do it, or is it too late by the time I see it?

Ive grabbed brittle starts and popped them into clean water. I think they survived, unless they died much later.

I have to say, the stuff works really well. I dipped an open brain that wasn't attached to anything, and off came a worm, instantly. Pretty impressed that it'll get most of the bad hitchhikers!

Get a bowl of tank water and swish the frag in there. Pick off what's bad in the bowl and add it to your tank.
Note: this then bypasses dip and could lead to some unwanted baddies.
But that's the only real way I could think to save anything on the frag besides manual removal if it's big enough like a brittle star.
 

Have you ever had an algae outbreak so bad that you had to break the tank down and start over?
