Reef Pest Solutions is an enterprise with a product that has a single mission: to eliminate all unwanted life trying to hitch a ride with our precious corals. Coral dips have gotten much better since we simply used diluted Lugol’s iodine but they’re not perfect; most prophylactic coral dips will do quite a number on the adult stage of various flatworms, copepods and nudibranch but the daggum eggs usually remain, and that’s where Reef Pest Solution All Out comes in.
RPS All Out uses a ‘penetrating agent’ to infiltrate the egg membrane of flatworms, nudibranchs and Tegastes red bugs eggs to kill them. All Out also uses compounds of Aloe Vera to protect corals while the dip is being performed, but it does not contain iodine. Time will tell if Reef Pest Solutions’ All Out lives up to its claims but some samples are making the rounds to aquarists around the country so feedback on All Out’s coral pest killing properties should be trickling in soon.
