That's what I thought it was. I have been busy and have not had the time to "properly" maintain my tank. Been fighting back from a hair algae breakout like you would not believe. 8O Everything is healthy in the tank, just still battling the hair.
, starting today I cut out all the lights but 1, I tried this once before but I cut out ALL the lights and my tangs arn't smart enough to come out of the rock unless the lights come on
, so I lost 2 tangs, 1 blue hippo, and a great big yellow 9that didn't help with the algae problem either. I've been fighting back with phosphate sponge, cutting back on feedings, an algae "remover" that's reef safe (it works but not very fast). I think my problem now is the hair algae is dieing off and providing food for the other hair algae.
