When you get near a computer, read the articles about algae battles in my signature from our articles section. It breaks down what you are experiencing. The Gha is simply out competing the cheato for a majority of the nutrients in the water column.

Cheato is a slow grower, even though it can be effective for nutrient control. That said, some have great success with it while others can't even get it to grow at all. I want to say some have theorized alkalinity being tied to that, but no one has proved that to my knowledge.

Thanks Hank.

I will check that out when I get home. Luckily I got some time before I get back into adding fish so I can take a couple runs at getting the GHA out and letting the corals grow in.
