If you can get an extra set of hands and do it when your ready for a water change you can get someone to hold the siphon tube right next to where your working and it will suck away at least 90% of all that stuff and it won't be as bad if your dying to get rid of the stuff. That is what i do when i'm trying to get rid of the darn bubble algae in my tank in case of those little things pop.

Looks like anthelia. AKA the plague..lol



It grows on a mat. Get your fingernail under the mat and peel it off. If you don't get the entire thing, it will grow back.

I think pat8you had part of the solution......for the rock with the clam....as for the other rock I'll try to 'peel' it off and see if I can get it that way.

Thank you all very, very much for the info.

Yeah, I have a big patch of growing on the largest rock in my tank. I prune it regulary but it then pops up in other places. You can never get it all it seems.

You can try injecting of few of the stalks with small portions of kalk and/or vinegar and see what happens, just like you would with aiptasia.

I was thinking of trying that....but I think I'll just prune it next to the clam. If I would have known that stuff grows like mad I certainly would have re-considered it!

cut it off as close as you can and then take some epoxy and cover up whats left. This might work but that stuff is very resilient!

I might end up doing that. I'm going to pull out the two pieces of liverock that they've overtaken and take a stiff brush to them. I've managed to dislodge the clam so both pieces of rock can come up.

Darn xenia!!

I sort of agree as I have this stuff growing every where in my frag tank. I do pay for all of my supplies with xenia money though. At least anything the LFS has
