    what is everyone’s go to coral dip that can’t use Bayer because of it killing shrimp. One of my gobys lost his buddy and I don’t want anymore to die from Bayer

    Never heard of it killing shrimp. I have 2 cleaner shrimp in my tank and I always dip with bayer. Did you rinse good with clean salt water after? I soak in bayer for 5-10 minutes and then rinse 3 times with new salt water and have never had an issue. The other one I have heard about is iodine (lugols).
