Yeah. I think I'm gonna start dosing my refugium with phyto. Cause Rotifera eat phyto and copepods eat rotifers. And I've dosed both my dt and fuge with both so why not phyto as well. Things that make you go hmmmmm

hmmmm indeed. sounds like alot of work to grow all of that. but i guess if a persons tank consumes copious amounts of all 3 it might be worth it vs buying it.

started seeing these

So we've started seeing these. I looked up bubble algae and the bubbles aren't green or red. We have an emerald in there but I don't know if he's enough. Help!

I started with pods in sump. Let them grow safely. Afterwards, I put it in DT. They are microscopic, so they'll travel the whole system.

If u cut back feedings, it'll starve out. Phosbane reactor will too. U can also suck it up. I do with a turkey baster. Also u can buy chemclean. I got all this info from Mr. X. Following another thread he posted on.

hey david. ive been cutting back feeding to only 3x a day because ive been trying to cut back on this stuff. jkjkjk i have only been feeding once a day for the past week.

im hoping the macro helps remove the stuff its using to grow. i also got an emerald crab thats been knocking it down really well. hopefully everything comes together with some of my new additions. macro and cuc. ill keep once a day feeding for a while more. thanks for the id. and the advice.

im trying to keep some of the equipment down. but if it takes a wild turn for the worse, i suppose i could try to play catch up. with the reactor and or the chemclean.

again thank you david!

Cyanobacteria and those bubbles are just undissolved gas.
