I used to have a bad cyano that I got rid of my water changes and adding a bag of phosphate but then two weeks later this green alge bloom came so maybe it's high phosphates

That's what I used the algae fix for. Cyano was overly rediculous!! 3 days later it was all gone with a water change

I don't know how good it will work on algae bloom because there's so much of it.

But you could try it before investing.

Here's your options,

1 cut all light for about a week

2 algae chemicals

3 sterilizer.


Sterilizer will really help your fish from potential infection and disease later on.

Good thinking! Patience, patience, patience and that's what it takes to have a good reef tank.

Get an algae eating fish, shrimp or gobies and let them eat it while you do water changes to remove the waste.
