  • Where do I buy interceptor?

    Looks like one of my corals has the bugs on it. Where can I buy interceptor and how much does it usually cost?

    You can get it from your vet, it is about 50.00 for six tablets.........
    IF IT IS WORTH DOING, TAKE YOUR TIME AND DO IT RIGHT..........

          Well, to be honest with you I just called a couple of reputable friends of mine with tanks and they said that they have had the bugs before and they have gone away. I had to of had them for at least a couple of weeks now and my corals look just as good as they ever have. I would rather not put meds in my tank if need be so I am going to wait and see what happens. Also one of the guys is going to give me a clown goby and he says they might eat the red bugs. If I change my mind in the up and coming weeks I will for sure let you know. If I did need the interceptor it would only be one pill because my tank is only 40 gallons.

            Eric Borneman, did some testing, you dont have to do your whole tank, just take the coral with the bugs out in a Q tank, for 5 days with interceptor, thats all you need, you also can dose a little higher in the Q tank, wont hurt the coral, usally its, if i remember right, 1tablet/360g,

            this is from Eric Borneman about red bug's,
            These are true parasites of Acropora. They are amphipods, probably of the genus Tegastes, but not T. acroporanus (5th maxilliped is different) - and probably undescribed. They are Acropora-specific, and I have tried to get them to host on various Montipora, Porites, Pocillopora and Pavona. They die and will not go onto these corals. They only parasitize Acroporids with enough coenosteum to move around (not the A. millepora type). I suspect they would get eaten. They sometimes can inhabit Acropora without causing much damage, or they can damage them to the point they die. They will die without a host in typically 3 days, though I have had some show signs of life (barely twitching, unable to swim) at five days. They swim well, and if you take a coral out of the tank, some hunker down tightly to the coral, others bail off and swim to another. They will not live in the tank without a host, though. They are direct developers, so no larval stage to worry about (females have a brood pouch, I got nearly 20 from 5 adults after two weeks).

                      Well Mark,
                      If you are still interested I would like to try one pill of interceptor. I would buy it off of you if you want.
