Red Slime update

I've changed food, and my fish like the flakes just as well as frozen. I also used the chemi-clean, and that worked great. I put it in Tuesday afternoon. By Wednesday morning 60% was gone, and today over 90% is gone. So I manually removed whats left after work. I tested my water to make sure all was ok, and everything was great.

I also tested for phosphates, and it was 0. But over the last week that I've been using the phosphate sponge it's not nearly as discolored as when I first started using it.

So thank you for the suggestions on killing the red slime! My tank looks great now, and you can really start to see the coralline algae growing.

Sounds like you are winning the battle! Keep up on the water changes for the next few weeks to make sure. Put in some fresh GAC and turn on the skimmer to get rid of the residual chemi-clean. Might want to try a poly filter as well.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
