    I've heard that Jason's corals are pretty pest free, i just received a gift card for Christmas and was wondering what people's thoughts on whether or not I should QT the Acros I'm ordering. Thanks

    There’s no harm in doing so. I dip all of my corals but don’t have space for a QT, but if I had one every single coral I had would go through it before it hit my display. My acros from him have never had any pests but honestly I have never had any major pests from anywhere

    Ya, i felt like after watching the video on his facility that it was pretty clean but I don't trust my luck. My QT is jam packed full of other acros and I have no idea if i should wait or jump on the hype train

    Check out the video Reef Builders did on Jason Fox's coral farm, it's very informative about his process for quarantining corals and getting them ready for propogation. That being said, I would still dip them and check for sessile pests like aiptasia before adding them to your main display tank :)

    I usually just dip every single coral I get just in case. However Jason Fox is very good at keeping everything healthy and pest free. So you should be fine, but you should always dip your corals just in case.

    Friends don't let friends not dip coral. Bayer, every time, no matter what.

    Dip and QT every time. One AEFW egg makes it in your system and you will pay a huge price.

    With how well tolerated bayer seems to be I can't think of a reason to not dip at the very least.
