Thanks.

I can easily google lots of things, but since you had knowledge about the stuff, I thought I'd ask you.

You're right about the liverock, it's not new to the world and I have no clue as to it's conditions before I got it. But I scrubbed and rinsed, scrubbed and rinsed, then scrubbed and rinsed some more. Obviously it wasn't enough to get rid of the macro, but hopefully it was enough to get rid of any junk in the rock.

Scott, I'll keep updated.

Thanks guys.

I just posted this in another thread for you, but that was before I saw this thread.

Check it out, discusses the Mg method.

FUBAR, thanks. Can't use that link because I'm not a member of reeffrontiers. After a major overhaul of the algae, cleaning of all the equipment in the tank, etc. seems to be getting the algae under control.

I think a major part of my problem was lack of maintence on my filtration. My skimmer was badly clogged with gunk, the powerheads flow wasn't as bad but was still impeded. Now the skimmer is pulling out so much more skimmate and the algae growth is dying down. Still growing, but not exploding. I think a few more vigilant cleanings and big water changes, with some new phosban, purigen, carbon, etc. and I might get the prolem under control.

Thanks again everyone for all the help.

One of the guys in our reef club had an outbreak of bryopsis and ended up accidentally overdosing with mag. He saw the results and was shocked. After the shock wore off he surfed around until he ran into some other threads on high levels of mag killing off bryopsis.

Phyl, I only read the first page so far and looks good! I'll check the rest of it out tommorow. Too much jargon, too late at night. haha.

So far, it seems to be a bit under control...for now.
