Great and good for you if it did work. Wonder if this works, and only one or two carrying them. I want to hear more other reefers if anyone had success or used it and it was fall into the category or either snake oil or every tank is different.This coral shows that the treatment works.
It wouldn't be alive without the treatment. It has grown so much that it had to be moved to another zone. All you can see now is a tiny scar in the Base that had to be taken with a zoom to see it. (Pictures attached)
It's a treatment that will not damage the aquarium. I would not risk not using it every time you have this situation.
A very important factor for success is that you cut all nitrogen and organic carbon sources immediately when noticing this kind of Necrosis.
Get an NDOC and adjust ASAP.
Its also a question of timing.
The sooner you treat it the better.
So having the treatments ready will make a difference also.
[email protected]The products were designed to be used independently depending on whether you have RTN or STN but the results above show good results when both were used at the same time.
I’m not sure if I have RTN or STN or perhaps both going on.
Can both RTN-X and STN-X “intense” bath dose be done together? I have the N-DOC instructions I’m following from my recent test for my 160 gallon total water volume system. As far as both - I mean can I take out the 606ml of aquarium water and mix both 6.06ml of RTN and 6.06ml of STN in same container and then apply with syringe to form cloud around the sick corals? One bath not sequential.
Also the daily dose for 21 days, is that just adding straight to the tank or mixing it with the 606ml of aquarium water each day. It doesn’t say anything about turning pumps off either for the daily dose.
There is no need to remove the dead areas after RTN further disturbing the coral. If the general conditions in the aquarium are optimal then the Acro colony should grow back over the skeleton in time.
Good to hear.Well I’m optimistic so far. The tissue necrosis has stoped. I don’t think I’ve had an RTN start so quick like that and just stop. Fingers crossed
Great news! Please keep us all posted over the coming months. Would be great to see this colony fully restored.Just wanted to add an update. RTN-X seems to have worked for me. I’ll be keeping a bottle on hand from now on. Here’s the latest pic of the acro. You can see there’s some new tissue growth if you compare with the past pic.
No, there was no need to try since the Reef Moonshiner method target levels along with the Witchhazel tank treatment does work excellent in most tanks that came across the method and the post in my group and tried it out to battle the issues against RTN/STN as well as some BJD and a very few hard to overcome Cyano species.

Even the real big dudes ;-) in Reefing are following this with great success and the particular Witchhazel product cost like $5 for 500ml or so. The only issues people sometimes have left is where a LPS dominant tank is infected with a disease that makes torches and Zoa melting away, here is the success rate lower.
But again all the items in the Witchhazel tank treatment post must be followed to have a chance to overcome the disease.
For FB folks, here the link to the Tank treatment instructions with the Witchhazel.
Lol, sorry Julian, I did not even realize this was a Sponsor post in a Sponsor forum section. I was simply responding to a Tag in respect to the Product utilization.You always know you are doing something right when your competitors feel the need to post directly on your group page to redirect attention to their product
Thanks for the thumbs up Reef Moonshiner guys
