Yeah same as cipro. One pill to 10/G. I use 1/2 to 10/G now.

If he is normally 10" then he's definitely struggling. Doesn't look horrible though.

Yes, I treat nems on rocks all the time. I've never had issues.

Causing minimal stress for some nems can mean the difference between life and death.

ebay. I use the 250mg tab size. I use (1) 250mg tab per 10 gallon TT per day with 100% water changes every night before lights out. Change water, add tab, lights out. A little more to it than that, you will want to read up on the procedure.

This is an awesome thread and I read Minh's on RC as well. It makes me want to plan to build a totally anemone specific system with the 90 gallon I just resealed this winter. I have a 400 gallon system for SPS primarily so for you anemone experts out there do you recommend me to plumb the anemone tank into the same system or keep it separate? Also any suggestions on how to spec out a tank for a Ritteri/Magnifica and other anemones I can keep with it? I've had RBTA and LTs in the past fairly successfully but they decided to move on me after 8 years in the same spot and they got sucked up in powerheads :( so I never got any anemones anymore and focused purely on acros.

What are your collective thoughts on prophylactic cipro treatment on h. magnifica and/or m. Doreensis? I've had one riterri and a few LTAs decline and die on me 2-3 weeks after purchase with all my water params looking good, adequate lighting and flow, to where the only explanation I can think of is unidentified disease or questionable collection practices. I've got a healthy looking ritteri in QT right now, under observation debating whether or not to proactively treat with cipro or hold off as long as it doesn't start declining.

Thank you to the OP for making this thread. Very informative and inspiring. I have a couple of questions. You've stated that 50 percent water should be done daily. After the 50 percent water is done, how much of the Cipro should be added. 250 mg or half of that.
Another person responded on the thread that he does a 100 percent water change. Will that be better?
Thanks again for your help.
