As anyone who actually follows this thread knows I've been trying to battle the ever slowly growing algae outbreak which over the years has covered my rocks ,back glass etc in a fuzzy coat of algae,.... The major problem here is that I cannot use any kind of CUC in my tank because of my triggerfish,.. I'm sure if I had a handful of snails that would go about their business without being eaten ,everything would be fine but that just isn't the case here.
A coupe of months ago I got an emailer flyer from one of the distributors we all use talking about a product called algae fix marine,.... Being rather skeptical about the hype and knowing full well that I'm going into unchartered waters here I decided to buy a bottle ,.. Well,.it sat on the shelf for a couple of months then one day I decided that I'd cautiously give it a try,..that was a couple of weeks ago,...
Wow,...so far so good,...none of the corals, lps
,mushrooms etc seem affected at all nor does the hard algae or the chaeto in the sump .. One cool thing is that it never caused the skimmer to go crazy ether.
I'm not trying to suggest that it's a miracle cure here,..there's a lot of tanks out their that poor maintenance,high nutrients poor lighting etc is running rapid and maybe it's effectiveness may be limited there BUT in MY specific application it's worked very well in knocking down the majority of my nuisance algae.
Maybe sometimes we need a little help from a doctor or plumber to help out a little,.... Got my fingers crossed,..I'll report back if anything comes up,good or bad.
