    Anyone know of a vet that will sell me some Interceptor Plus for red bugs?

    Thanks everyone for your responses. I got it through an online store and our dog's vet approved the prescription. I'll make a video of the whole thing just for fun.

    But you got the chewable right? Not the original white pills...

    Yeah it's the chewable. Planning to put it in tonight. I can't catch my purple Lobster so I'm kind of stalling. I guess I'll have to risk it with him in there.

    I'm curious to how well this worked. I found red bug on 1 of my frags about a week ago. I removed it and dipped in a double dose of coral disinfect for 20min. I agitated the Frag and still found a couple and poured about 3ml directly onto the Frag and redipped for another 5min and they appeared to be gone but I grabbed a single 4.5ml interceptor from my Vet just in case I find more in the tank. I'd really hate to dose the entire tank though, I've got pistol shrimp and Peppermint that I would never be able to get out. What can you expect from dosing a reef with It, or is this not even a option?

    It is dosed to reefs, but may kill things you don't want killed. Do a search or two before you try it, and be very precise with the dosing.
