I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Not sure if the pictures will show it well, but its on half my rocks and is kinda fuzzy, not drippy. I have way way too many cuc and they have been making a good size dent. if you recall I have phosphate issues, been reading 1.0 since I setup tank. Only recently in the last few days has the phos gone down to about .5.

Thanks for your input, I love hearing from you.

IMO if that's not cyano, it's deep red coralline

i've seen that before and although i can't recall the name, i have never seen it grow long. it's not a bad looking algae and wouldn't worry much about it. i've never witnessed it cover or choke out anything nice. HTH

*edit* it's not cyano if it's fuzzy. i wouldn't say it's coralline, or cyano if so.

We have that algae in our large tank, like doug said it doesnt seem to grow long at all. I wouldn't worry about it.

Oh yes, he was eating yesterday and finally came out of hiding overnight. I wish i could have more than one, they are really colorful fish. And they dont float, but they don't zip back and forth either. the perfect combination.
