    I'm going thru the same thing. Emeralds and I'm dosing hydrogen peroxide. I'm spot treating it daily. I also have as tang that is earning it as well. Time and patience will help too

    Vibrant cleared a bad outbreak that was in my tank. It took about 2 months to clear, but it hasn’t come back in 9months.

    I dose it about every two weeks, when I remember. I am not religious about it.

    Ingredients are are the label. If you use it according to directions, it’ll last a while. There is a huge thread on here that you can look at. I posted pictures of my tank as the treatment progressed on that thread.
