What is Reef Flux commonly used for?
The active ingredient in Reef Flux, Fluconazole, is primarily used for killing off a certain type of algae called ‘bryopsis algae’ which commonly grows in tanks. Hobbyists use this active ingredient as it is highly detrimental to bryopsis algae and does not harm any other aspects of the aquarium. This is why the product was previously known as Algae Buster!
Furthermore, this ingredient is also known for its treatment of certain fungal fish infections and therefore, if there is any of this present in a tank, the Reef Flux will remove it immediately. To avoid unintended nutrient spikes it should not be used in tanks with refugiums that have Caulerpa and Bryopsis.
What is the most effective way of using Reef Flux?
To get optimum results from your Reef Flux capsules, the best thing to do is to turn off your skimmer for the first 3 days. It is important to note that activated carbon and phosphate remover can be used after 3 days, but you should remove any other chemical filtration that is being used in your tank.
To begin the process, empty 1 capsule for every 10 gallons of tank water (20mg per gallon) into high flow area in the sump. After 14 days, perform a minimum 30% water change. This will help to cleanse the tank of any waste. Filter socks are recommended during treatment in order to help clean the aquarium.
What CAN’T Reef Flux be used for?
Reef Flux is only for use on ornamental aquariums and fish. Reef Flux is definitely NOT for human use and NOT for treating fish intended for human consumption. Keep away from children and animals. In case of accidental overdose, contact a health professional immediately.
