Brightwell Aquatics Medi Coral Product Overview:
In an exciting development for reef-keepers Red Sea has developed a unique patent pending formula to treat the pest anemones Aiptasia sp., Anemonia majano and Boloceroides sp. Affecting almost every reef aquarium, Aiptasia (otherwise known as glass anemones), are often introduced via live rock or corals and can quickly reach plague proportions in marine aquaria, destroying corals and other marine livestock with devastating effect.
Existing treatments are often unsuccessful as when threatened Aiptasia quickly retract into holes in the rock and release planula (larvae) in to the aquarium which can rapidly develop in to full anemones. Additionally any part of the anemone's body left attached to a rock can regenerate into a full anemone. Many treatments can therefore lead to a proliferation rather than the removal of Aiptasia.
Research and development work carried out by Red Sea has led to the development of Aiptasia-X, a product which overcomes the problems usually associated with Aiptasia treatments thanks to its unique formula.
Red Sea Aiptasia consists of natural components which form a uniquely thick, adhesive material. Instead of causing the Aiptasia to feel threatened, the unique formula is sensed as food stimulating the anemone to expand and ingest the material. The adhesive form of the treatment makes both the application of the material easy as well as sealing the anemone's mouth preventing any release of planula. Within minutes of applying the material the Aiptasia will implode, eradicating both the anemone and its planula.
Red Sea's new treatment is completely reef-safe and any material not ingested by the Aiptasia is harmless to sessile invertebrates. Excess material will decay harmlessly over time without any adverse consequences.
Easy to use and highly effective, Aiptasia-X provides a solution long sought-after by almost every reef-keeper at one time or another in the life of their aquarium.
The Red Sea Aiptasia kit includes a 60ml bottle of material plus an applicator set consisting of a syringe with 2 (straight and angled) lock-on applicator tips enabling treatment of even the most inaccessible of anemones.
The 60ml provided in the kit should be sufficient to treat approximately 100 Aiptasia anemones.

Two Little Fishies ReVive Coral Cleaner is Vivid Aquariums' top choice for coral dips. It is made from natural plant extracts. We use ReVive to dip all of our new corals before placing them in our systems. We have personally seen this product remove and kill, Montipora Eating Nudibranchs, Acropora Eating "Red Bugs", and Acropora Eating Flat Worms. We prepare our dips using four capfuls per 1 gallon of saltwater and dip for 8-15 minutes. We also use a turkey baster to blow jets of water all over the coral and help blow off any unwanted parasites. Currently we believe Revive is simply the best coral dip on the market.
When to use: ReVive Coral Cleaner is designed for all general purpose live coral cleansing, including the acclimation of live corals to aquariums, rinsing newly fragmented corals, and dipping corals infected with an unwanted parasite such as Montipora Eating Nudibranchs, Acropora Eating "Red Bugs", and Acropora Eating Flat Worms.
Directions: Mix 4 capfuls (40 ml) of ReVive per gallon of clean saltwater in a bucket or other container suitable for bathing the coral. Wash coral in this mixture for a few minutes while using a turkey baster to blow unwanted parasites off of the coral. After the bath, remove coral from ReVive/saltwater mixture and place it in a saltwater aquarium with moderate water flow. The ReVive/saltwater may be used again for cleaning several corals, but it should be discarded after 1 hour of use.
Note: For cleaning live coral only. ReVive is not a medication, nor is it intended to be a substitute for any medication. Not for use as a household cleaner. Not for human consumption.
Contains: Oleum abietis 0.5%, Citrus limon 0.5%
