Heck Yes I like it!! I have always been in that same boat! Ive always had good luck and with that same list of pests and under "control"...Only lately getting back into the hobby pretty hard, I've been wondering about the other boats and diffrent paths down the reef aquarium journey. I think I wanna do things better than I use to, being pro active over my usual hoping for good luck.I don't, not for 25 years and realize its a risk....a calculated one imo , but risky no less. I have my fair share of pests, vermetid snails, had Aiptasia but for now eradicated, Asterina stars, etc. I manage to keep them under control.... one day I will likely get bitten in the behind lol.
Yes I would always dip, and I will give you a good example why. I bought a montipora frag recently. I dipped it initially before it went into the QT about 2 weeks ago with Coral Rx, and a few days ago, I noticed some white spots growing on it. I dipped it again today, and literally dozens of larvae came out of it. You never know what kind of parasites are potentially growing in your corals even if you don't see them.I picked up the first two corals for the 120 as a test its a Kenya tree and rosta zoas.
I have some coral rx I picked up as well
Now I've never dipped any coral just always threw them in, I always got them small and closely inspected the frag. Im getting back into the hobby and trying diffrent approaches on allot of things so far so good.
Never dipped before, should I do it now?
So far now since then,, all my new corals i have done in coralrx. now I won't put a single coral in the d.t with out it, I've too seen worms swimming off, and other unidentifiable junk.Personally, I would never use Bayer. It is a pesticide that contains carcinogenic compounds. Coral RX is made from natural oil extracts.
