Kent Marine Tech D Information
Kent Marine Tech D Coral Dip & Conditioner disinfects corals and many other invertebrates to prevent the spread of bacterial and protozoan disease. Designed for all stony corals, and most soft corals. Tech D is economical to use, each ounce will make about 1½ gallons of dip!
This product is a dip, for use outside the aquarium only! Place a quart (950 ml) or more of aquarium saltwater in a container, depending on the size of the animal to be dipped. Observe good practice for temperature, salinity etc. Add one teaspoon (5 ml or 1 capful from an 8 or 16 oz. bottle) of Tech D Coral Dip & Conditioner per quart (or liter) of water in the bucket and stir. Place the coral in the container for 6 to 7 minutes. Remove the animal from the container and place in the aquarium.
Considerations for use:
Never use Tech D Coral Dip & Conditioner in an aquarium. It is for use as a short time dip only! Tech D is useful for small polyped stony corals, large polyped stonies, leather corals, and most soft corals. It is not recommended for colonial or other anemones, gorgonians, or polyps. Only dip for the recommended 6 to 7 minutes. Longer times may cause damage to the animal. Because these animals are individuals, carefully observe them while using. If negative reactions are noted, such as excessive slime production, discontinue use on that animal.
Each batch of dip can be used on several corals. Use until there is slime buildup in the dip or it is noticeably dirty. Dip potency will drop overnight, once mixed, so only prepare the amount required for each use, then discard prepared dip each day.
For fastest growth, once the coral is in the aquarium, Kent Marine Essential Elements and Coral-Vite should be used simultaneously with Tech I Iodine supplement to replace those minerals lost in protein skimming and filtration and used up by corals and other invertebrates. Calcium should be added via Kalkwasser Mix, Concentrated Liquid Calcium, Turbo Calcium or new Kent Tech CB, parts A & B. Tanks with heavy coral populations require additional strontium to that which is in the Coral-Vite. Use Strontium & Molybdenum Supplement or Turbo Strontium for this. Macro algae will require the Iron supplement, as well. Live corals require strong lighting of proper spectrum and immaculately clean systems. Regular water changes are encouraged. Use Kent Marine Superbuffer-dKH to control alkalinity and prevent pH swings.
Deionized water, iodine, potassium iodide, potassium bromide, proprietary bromine compound, stabilizers.
