AF Protect Dip is a new coral dip from Aquaforest that like other products, helps disinfect, clean and treat your corals when adding new corals, fragging or treating health issues.
As a prophylactic dip, it will clean the surface of the coral and reduce the risk of diseases like STN or RTN, bleaching, mycosis, or Brown Jelly Syndrome. They also note its intended to reduce the risk of acropora eating flatworms as well.
A dip like this is a key part of any regimen, and always helps to dip new corals and frags before putting them in quarantine and then transferring to the main display. It can also help prevent issues after transporting corals.
To use AF Protect Dip, dissolve 2.5 ml in 5 liters of saltwater or water taken directly from the tank. Just dunk the corals in and rinse with a turkey baster or other tool for about 5 minutes. Then just rinse in clean saltwater before transferring back to the tank.
We’re not sure of the ingredients, but they note it does not contain iodine or oxidizing compounds.
