Just bought a yellow head sleeper goby and two extra large(IMO) turbo snails! Hopefully the goby will clean up some of the sand faster then the hermits and snails I have.

Coral wrapped in HA

Here's a pic of one of my corals, it's got HA stuck in the coral. Any ideas on how to remove it, I've pulled the rock out before and this hair is stuck in a very hard almost glued down way to this rock it's strange to say the least. I got two turbos yesterday that amazed me and mowed almost all the hair on this rock where there's no coral, but I don't think they will be able to get the hair in the coral, suggestions?

A coralife 65 skimmer is WAY underpowered for your size tank. I wouldn't use one of them on a 40 gallon tank, let alone a 110. I would up filtration, add more rock, up water changes, reduce feeding, not add any more livestock, and increase flow.

More powerful skimmer and maybe phosband. I put a bag of it next to m return pump and within days all hair algae was gone.

Ok so skimmer check. Here's a big question and I just happened to be looking it up. This is my first tank with a built in over flow. Incan scrape HA from glass and everything else but HOW do I get rid of the HA that is in my Overflow box?

I wouldn't even worry about it. As long as it's not in the display, it's a mini refugium!

What do you mean? Because it cannot be seen? I only ask cause my overflow is in the DT just hidden behind the box

I mean that algae can grow anywhere and it's only a benefit, unless it's seen in the display.

Gotcha that's what I thought you meant. I kind of a stupid question on my part but "better to ask a stupid question then remain a stupid person"
