    Posted: August 27 2010 at 6:42pm
Well, I've just taken my next step into this wonderful and hair pulling hobby.  I have red bugs on my acropora.  I quarantined all incoming corals over the last year but, alas, my acros all started going downhill last week and, upon further inspection, I found the culprits.  I just dipped one of the acros that is not attached in Revive for 5 minutes, and it appears to have killed off the redbugs, 100s were seen floating around in the dip afterward.
 
However, most are secured to the live rock and it looks like interceptor treatments are in my near future.
 
Does anyone have some I can buy?  My system volume is about 150 gallons and I'm thinking of doing 1 treatment per week for 3 weeks unless someone tells me otherwise.
 
Sigh...

I dont see that he carries interceptor Jeff. He carries the medication for flatworms
Interceptor is a dog de-wormer and requires a precription from a vet.  But I'm sure there is a website somewhere to buy it.

Thanks Brad.  Have you ever had to run interceptor before?  If so, I guess I can assume that I'm going to lose my 3 shrimp and all crabs and amphipods??

I have, quite awhile ago.  It's not so bad, I lost a few crabs, but not many.  I'm not sure on the copepods.  I haven't treated in about 5 years.  I check for them, and I have found them before, but as of late I haven't found any on my acros. I gotta feeling one of my wrasses get them.

I would much rather deal with those guys instead of manjanos.  I wish there was a magic pill for them.Wink

Thanks Sanddune, turns out my mom had a few for her dogs.  I'll need to get some more for subsequent doses, so I may hit you up.
