    I used Fenbendazole for my 3 gallon tank to kill any hydroids on the live rock and sand for my dwarf seahorses but I ended up using another tank for my dwarf seahorses. I want to use my 3 gallon for corals but Fenbendazole is toxic to most corals. How do I remove the Fenbendazole from my live rock and sand? I read that apparently the rock absorbs the chemical?

    Dear Taylor:

    If you’re going to use a three-gallon tank that’s been treated with fenbendazole as a micro reef with live corals, the safest thing to do would be to replace the substrate and live rocks. That should not be too difficult or expensive for such a small aquarium.

    Otherwise, you could try continuous filtration with a good grade of activated carbon to continuously remove any trace amounts of the fenbendazole (brand name Panacur).

    Best of luck with your micro-reef project, Taylor!
