I tried dosing a while back (directly into my 60g reef cube) and the hair algae got a little bleached looking but did not totally die off. The bubble algae did not change. Some of my Zoas never looked better. Hammer, Monti caps, mushrooms, Lepto, candy canes, etc all seemed to not notice. A month or so after stopping, everything is back to normal (algae included). The big difference I did notice was far less pods
in my filter sock on the first changes.
Moving stuff into a bucket is a better idea if you can get the rocks out.
