Tried it, it did nothing. I am curious as to why you used HP to clean the rocks. Seems to me you'd be starting the "cycle" all over again.

It kills off all algae . Previously I dip the rock in h202 scrub it clean and put it right back in. Every coral that enters my tank gets it too.. Iv it's ever cycled afteri did that. I never noticed it..

It is Bryopsis. Bryopsis is a general name for many types of hair-like algae found in your tank. Bryopsis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Tech-M method will take care of it.

I thought bryopsis was leafy type. Many hairs branched of one. Not just single hairs?

I tried this a couple few weeks back due to a slowly growing algae problem which over time engulfed my rocks etc,...in my case if I could ever have a normal CUC things IMO would be ok but due to a invert eating humuhumu it just isn't the case ,... This marine algae fix worked beautifully for me ,... In my case it was worth every penny and then some!!!!

I've tried a kole tang. An urchin. And the I got a foxface. Plus my flame angel.. They only eat low grown. New algae. But it grew fast than they could eat it. And never touched it once it got longer than a half inch. I just couldn't get rid of it fast enough. The tank is going on day 3 of complete blackout. I'll see how it looks when I get home. But my guess is it'll have to b blacked out for a few weeks
