Forget the time, I've put a ton of money into this setup. I've personally raised Ecotech stock prices I think, Lol. Next is to scrap the radions hanging from the ceiling with the new hanging units they are selling.
Any before/afters of your red planet? I've tried to keep one twice and failed.

You and Ziggy both, what's the deal with the GHA in Maryland!? I'm just messing man. I wish you best of luck with the GHA battle. I think its one of the worst algaes to battle in a reef tank. I've had my battle with it. What worked for me during my GHA battle was reducing the time the lights where on by an hour of two, staying on top of phosphates by using GFO, bigger water changes, not feeding as much food, along with some very frustrating manual removal. Best of luck to you Bribo.

I did notice a difference in growth rate of the GHA in my tank when I raised my Alk from 7.6 to the mid 9.5. It essentially has stopped growing. It hasn't died off completely but the slower growth has helped me manage better. I haven't researched the relationship but it was the only thing I changed over the last few months.

Though it is supposed to be Kent's product not all alk additives that is what kills off hair algae.
