got some new live rock

so i meet this guy on cl and he was offering aquacultured(thats what he called it) live rock in a 150 gallon he was breaking down for $3 dollars a pound

so i ment to his house today and when i walked in his basement my jaw droped to the ground 4 beautiful big reef tanks> i wish i had a camera to take some pick?

so this is what im getting at. i got home put the live rock in my tank and left to got to work. when i get home sitting on the very top of my highest rock is a tiny frag of coral and im not sure what it is was wondering what u guys think?

and also was wondering if i could get some info on hair algae because i also found a lil bit of that as well. i would like to get rid of it if its gonna spread everywhere

tia everybody

To help with the alge I suggest use'n RO/DI water or distiller instead of treated tap water of that is what you are use'n. If you're tank is cycled I would get a CUC (clean up crew) which oz crabs snails and shrimp. You can also turn off the lights for a few days and that will help depending on what kind of fish or corals you have in the tank will determine how long you cam leave them off. I suggest use'n the RO/DI water if you don't already. and get a good clean'n crew to start off with.
