I've been having a small HA problem. Reading this link, i've been doing everything possible to get rid of my HA. One of the bulletpoints has you turning your lights off for a minimum of 1 week. I have a GS maroon clown, a 2" xenia colony, a small 2" zoa colony and a 2" clove polyp frag. Would the lights being off affect these ??

Also is there something I can put into my filter to remove my phosphates. I don't test them, but its possible that the phosphates are fueling my HA. In the past i've used phosguard (but I used it to control my silicates from the tap water experiment) and saw another product that was some kind of red and green HA remover sponge that you put in your filter.

Anybody have any good advice for my phosphates ?? Also sorry to hijack your thread pal, but I didn't want to clog the forums with another thread !!

Use GFO to remove phosphates. I put some Clearmax into my canister filter every 1.5 months or so.

No HA that I can see...I just have this pesky biofilm junk...
BTW-Good luck on that HA...Man I feel for you! (I was blown away by that picture!)
