Will this work?
This seems to look like an "updated" version of the product, it has all the same creatures on it as the other one and the same general use, what is the active ingredients we are looking for?

If anyone knows that would be great thank you!

This one has one less insecticide active ingredient. Educated guess, I don't see why it wouldn't work. I put more faith in the insect killer than any of the coral dips. I've been using the Bayer complete for years.

Sorry here's the active ingredients
Haha I just noticed that the active ingredients are 99.25% other ingredients what does that mean?
And .75% cyfluthrin

Still im not sure im looking for the other one at the moment but I need to dip and coralrx is just not working..

Ever since @Battlecorals put out that nice write up several years ago I don't really use this stuff. Most people do not use enough PPE to make it a good idea and it could cause you longterm problems...
That being said, it'll do what you want it to do but no hobby and no coral is worth my current or future health

It's no worse than any other chemical around the house or at a store. Drain cleaner, weed killer, bleach, kalk, gasoline, and zoanthids can cause you just as much of a problem if you're irresponsible. It's bug killer. Don't drink it, don't inhale it, don't get it on your skin. For me it's economical and effective.

Well thank you thats the logic speaking and your right!

I just ordered the correct bayer from the brs video , @ my local lowes, im going to pick it up I have coral coming tomorrow and this is my first bayer dip I've used only coralrx before but I need something stronger and less harsh on coral.

And I guess I will follow brs video if its wrong they will replace my whole tank and equipment for me

I will definitely pay attention to safety and what I'm doing thank you! Rinse rinse rinse don't drink watch eyes got it thanks lol
