cut your losses on hammer, take out,not worth risk of BJD... :(
Ahhh...that makes me so sad, even with LA having sent the wrong type of hammer.

poor hammer...doesn't look good
I know. :( When I shine my blue LED flashlight at it, the right head doesn't show any luminescence, but the left still has a little glow. IDK if there's any way to hang on to the one side. I don't have any fragging tools at the moment, and it's obviously in bad shape and probably wouldn't survive the trauma anyway. :( :( :(

Thanks guys! I don't know why I'm not wanting to let it go! Haha. I might put it in QT and see if it has a chance.

BJD was rapidly spreading in my tank. Lost 7 corals in 24 hours. I was able to halt the devastation with 3 things. Got my parameters perfect and did a chemiclean treatment in the DT. Then run heavy bags of carbon in my sump. BjD went into remission and no more losses. Ciprofloaxin is the best course though if you have it.

I just added another 16oz of bottled bac. Fingers crossed for better numbers in the morning!

I think I have a good idea of where I want to place my corals, so I'm gonna get to mounting tomorrow! I'm so excited to have everything together. :D

Now I have to decide if I'm going to make my own controller board/storage shelf combo or buy one. Commercially built will be sleek, but not quite what I want. Homemade is less expensive and will be exactly what I need, but it's wet and cold out. I do know that I can't tolerate this cord spaghetti much longer. It's making me crazy!

Unlike CoralRX, it treats BJD. Saved my hammer from BJD and doom... Remove, soak for 5min max and then immediately return to the tank.
Before I buy a bottle, did you ever treat any other coral with it? This stuff is expensive.

The friend that recommended it to me has used it quite a few times, but I've only used it on the one coral that I had an issue with BJD (I lost 2 other corals previously when I didn't know about this product).

Yes, it is expensive - but you don't need to mix the whole thing (just use enough water to only cover the coral(s) in question). I used 1 capful in 500ml of water to treat my one hammer. For me it worked out to $2.50 to save a $140 hammer.

I ordered some, but I just got rid of the hammer. :( It had weird black sprinkle-like specks where what little remains of the tissue sat in the skeleton.

I'll be glad to have some on hand. I have had good results with other Poly Lab products.

Polyp Lab Medic and Revive had saved many fish and one coral over the past few months.

I know, diluted cheapens the cost. But to spend 40 for it to only work in a single case, is expensive. I have had a lot of loss where iodine would not assist. Peroxide was a last resort since hammers balloon under peroxide. I managed to save 3 heads.

I was reading it, I wonder if it actually works on monti eating nudibranches, there's been a few (2 maybe) out break cases with some of the posters.

Anyhow, My lights are dying. i am probably going to have to order some because noop wont be here before these take their last breath. When it rains it pours.

It's not diluted; it's 45g per 4 liters - so if your coral fits in a 500ml container (as mine did) you only need to use approximately 5.6g - hence ~$2.50 for that single treatment (and I have enough left to treat an additional 3.5 liters).
