Hopefully this pic will post. See what you think? I think its a form of algea and most LFS do too...

Many years ago When I had some algea I rubberbanded a toothbrush on the end of a siphon hose and gently scrubbed rock while pulling water out for a PWC. after a few times and finding out what the source was I never saw it again

Yeah I do the same thing but due to the LR being loose in my tank and not glued together, I have tumbeled the reef a couple of times trying to scrub it off. It doesnt come off that easy at all.

if its hard to get off then its not cyno, cyno is easy to suck off the SB or LR.

Well its not on the SB but is very much afixed to the LR! It takes a good scrubbing to get it off the LR. I wonder if the sea hare will eat it? I was told by the LFS he would eat any type of algea.

I bet hell eat what you have. I would not scrub the LR if you want the hare to live. Let him do the work.. Cyno is not a algae its a bacteria, but from waht you say and the pics that is not what you have.

Are you saying I do or do not have algea? I took a couple of rocks out tonight and scrubbed them. However there is still some in there. Im probably going to catch the sea hare and take him back to the LFS in a week or so if I dont see the algea gone. I dont want him to die.
I think Im going to order me a Phosban reactor tomorrow as well. Cant hurt for sure!

I have a green sea hare and he actually moves pretty quick when he wants to and yes he is a ferocious algae eater! He should be fine..(By the way they are masters of hiding I hadn't seen him in 2 weeks until last week)

Is there anyone else with an opinion on the pics I posted? I just want to make sure I have ID this crap right! I would only think it could be algea??
