Prime Coral Prevent RTN is used to treat saltwater systems infected with RTN parasites that cause RTN, STN, tissue necrosis, bleaching, polyp retraction, and loss of color on corals. Prime Coral Prevent RTN kills free swimming RTN parasites and parasites on and within the host coral. Prime Coral Prevent RTN should be used in conjunction with Prime Coral STOP RTN coral dip for maximum effect.

Caution: Not all infected corals will survive treatment. Use at your own Risk.

Note: SPS corals are more susceptible to heavy infestation.

Avoid adding to areas where fish may be exposed to high concentrations. Add to sump.

Dose 1 ml for every 10 gallons of actual water volume.

Directions:

March 8th 2019, Prime Coral Labs announces successful testing of a new in-tank dosing strategy results in dramatically better treatment of philaster in reef systems. By adding two booster doses of Prime Coral Prevent RTN, one in 2 hours after the initial dose has synergistic effect on eliminating RTN parasite philaster from the water column. RTN parasites use the water column to find and infect new corals. With the booster doses during repeated trials at Prime Coral Labs, the philaster protozoan coral parasite was successfully removed from the water column of the reef system with initial dose followed by booster doses by 98%. Each treatment with in-tank Prime Coral Prevent RTN resulted in 98% successful clearance of the RTN parasites in the water column. Boosting schedule recommended is as follows:

PROTOCOL UPDATE 6/21/2019

Treatment 3 (day 5):  initial dose per Prime Coral Prevent RTN directions. First booster dose 45 minutes after initial dose has been added. First booster dose is 10% of the initial dose, added immediately to the sump. Second booster dose 45 minutes after first booster dose has been added. Second booster dose is 10% of the initial dose, added immediately to the sump.

Treatment 4 (day 7): initial dose per Prime Coral Prevent RTN directions. First booster dose 45 minutes after initial dose has been added. First booster dose is 10% of the initial dose, added immediately to the sump. Second booster dose 45 minutes after first booster dose has been added. Second booster dose is 10% of the initial dose, added immediately to the sump. Third booster dose 45 minutes after second booster dose has been added. Third booster dose is 10% of the initial dose, added immediately to the sump.

Treatment 5 (day 9): initial dose per Prime Coral Prevent RTN directions. First booster dose 45 minutes after initial dose has been added. First booster dose is 20-25% of the initial dose, added immediately to the sump. Second booster dose 45 minutes after first booster dose has been added. Second booster dose is 20-25% of the initial dose, added immediately to the sump. Third booster dose 45 minutes after second booster dose has been added. Third booster dose is 20-25% of the initial dose, added immediately to the sump.

Treatment 6 (day 11): initial dose per Prime Coral Prevent RTN directions. First booster dose 45 minutes after initial dose has been added.

Repeat Treatment 7 as needed for outbreak of coral tissue necrosis.

*Initial dose should be dripped in the sump over 30 minutes. Boosting dose can be added immediately in the sump and does not need to be diluted in tank water.

See video for boosted treatment.

Recommendations:

Dilute the full dose in 1 gallon of tank water and drip into sump or high flow area between 20 to 30 minutes. For healthy tank maintenance, use every 2 weeks as directed. To treat an RTN, STN, bleaching parasite outbreak, dose every 2 days for two weeks. It is strongly recommended to combine Prime Coral STOP RTN coral dip in conjunction with Prime Coral Prevent RTN in-tank treatment for maximum effect on RTN parasites and better coral health.
