take it from me, just because it grows on glass, does not mean it will grow on rock *sigh*

I've never done anything to intentionally promote the growth but order our rock from liverock.com. That would be my suggestion if you are trying to get more coraline growth!

If you have this problem with a acrylic tank how do you remove it?

Any non-metalic but still stiff scraper will work, such as the suggested credit card or kent scraper.

pufferman, That sounds funny they way your algae just curls up... My coraline when I scrape it off turns to almost dust like in the water... The only time I get large pieces is when my Old thick coraline chips off the back of the tank in large pieces. Is the algae soft to the touch ?

no, it is kind of rough to the touch. The only way of getting it off is to scrape with a razor blade. It only really started when i added doses of calcium.

Is this a common problem? You are scaring me. I do not want to have this problem with my tank.

it is not a problem. Why do you have it as well? I am positive it is coralline as it is calcified onto the glass

No I do not. I am concered because of the size of my tank and I can not use a razor blade on acrylic. I do have it all over the rocks though.

well, with acrylic you use credit cards to scrape it off.
