My red bug is back big bloom this year I'm gonna finally treat I have many different conches do I need to take them out as well if I treat with interceptor
Also how much do I use on a 90-110 gallon wave tank
Do I do a water change after?
I have two bags of chemi pure in now
I've been reading online.
I didnt find a chart that tells u how much to use. I need to research more.
After I treat I put in the carbon and snails back but that's after I do a water change, and how long do I let the interceptor sit in tank?
How much of a water change should I do?

I would use 1/2 pill of the large dog size for your system. 12-24hrs.The exact amount and duration of treatment aren't all that critical. Interceptor is very effective at killing what it kills--arthropods, but it seems to have little effect on anything else i.e. corals, fish and clams.
Remove the carbon/chemi-pure, turn off the air to your skimmer ( you want to treat the water in there, but not remove the medication). Keep everything else running as normal.
After treatment, put in fresh carbon and perform a 20-40% water change.
It is really a very straightforward and unproblematic treatment. You really should repeat it in few weeks as well.
