Experimental BJD Treatment On Gold Torch w/ Cipro

So, I have a super rare Indo yellow torch that started to recede and brown jelly started to form. I heard a customer was doing a whole tank treatment with great success but I wasn’t ready to take that risk so I’am experimenting with isolated long term treatment using Cipro.

The concentration I’am using is 60mg of Cipro per 750ml of tank water. Dipped for 6 hours per day for 3 consecutive days. Keeping the dip container under lower light and the same temp as the tank. Easy to do with specimens container.

It went through 2 dips so far. Today, before I gave it a 3rd dip, I noticed the coral was significantly better looking and all the tentacles were out so I am continuing with the 3rd dip! Wish me luck! The result after the 2nd dip looks very positive!

Going to repeat the same treatment on another struggling Euphyllia. I’ve tried 30 mins Cipro dip on this one before but it doesn’t seems to be enough so I am going to do it for 24 hours. So far, I’ve tried Lugols, Revive, Bayer, and short term Cipro. Nothing seems to to help.
