Hi guys,
Can I use Kordon rapid cure and Microbe-Lift Herbtana at the same time??
it seems there is no copper in rapid cure, and Microbe-Lift Herbtana cant go togher with any copper based dosage.
what I want to do is try to get rid of the white spots from the fish, and use herbtana to build up strong slim coating for the fish.
not sure if it will work, anyone has any experience??

I’ve been waiting to see if anyone else chimes in here. I have not used these two products as they are not in my formulary of medications. The kordon product has malachite green in it, and that doesn’t work really well on marine fish. The other product isn’t a true medication, it is just a tonic.
What disease are you trying to control?

Microbe- Lift:
Do not use with any other medications or treatments
Do not use with any algaecides or copper based products


While Kordon has : ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Triethylene Glycol, Polyvinylpyrrolidone K-29, and Malachite Green.
I dont know if any will react with Microbe-Lift

it's ich I am trying to dealing with. I tried coppersafe, it stopped spreading the diease. but the achellies tang who had it, never got rid of the whitespots completely, and I lost it after 2 weeks coppersafe treatment. other tangs stayed very well.
So I changed to ripd cure in another qt, because a purple tang came with whitespot, it did reduced the amount of spots on day 3 first treatment, than I stopped use rapid cure as instructed. but after 3 days of the first rapid cure treatment, the purple tang got more whitspots again. I am not sure if 3 days dosage of it can really kill ich, as the lifecycle of the diease seems a lot longer than 3 days.
that is why I am thinking about adding herbtana to help the fish to boost the immue system....

Since you have 2 qt tanks have you thought about using Humblefish 36hr TTM ?
Takes 2 weeks but works.

Do you quarantine new coral before adding it to your reef tank?
