Even tho I'm doing big water changes?

Guess I'll stop dosing then and just do the water changes.

Yeah I'm going to stop the dosing all together. I am using ro/di salt water from my LFS.

I don't know of anyone who has had any long term success keeping the shaving brush algae alive for any extended period of time. Good luck with it.
