The guy that I know who did that (Malcolm) doesn't have GHA anymore and it only took a few treatments. Let us know!

Justkeepswimming, that was certainly some interesting reading. One guy said his xenias pulsed like crazy. Anothere said his corals browned up, zoos changed colors, but all returned to normal in weeks. The sugar treatment makes me nervous, as does adding anything else to my tank, but it seems to be a treatment more for nitrates. Mine are very low.

It is a new tank, and believe it or not, I still haven't taken time to test the phosphates, or even simply put a phosphate sponge in there. Also, siphoning doesn't work. The stuff is attached to the rocks, mixed into the sand. Gotta get busy. The old fashioned way.

Thanks for the input Lando!

If i were you I would as soon as possible. Its sounds very much likely thats your problem. my last algae bloom, i tested everything and my phosphates were off the charts. check the phosphates, buy some phos sponge or a phosban reactor if they are high...or just to be cautious.
