Yeah, it is halimedia. Either way, shouldn't matter once the octopus starts skimming!

Yeah, with that skimmer, shouldn't be much of a problem anyways. But halimedia uses calcium, right? I don't think they really compare.

Thatd be cool, just be careful with the two nems fighting. You gotta get over to bethel park sometime, I fragged a free piece of my birdsnest for a guy who was starting out a while ago, he never came to get it so it's completely encrusted and growing fast now. I don't really want it because I already have a colony.

Completely forgot about the penny macros, what a good deal.

It isn't a major issue. I still have it on my back glass some. I'm no longer cleaning the front and sides of my glass several times a day, only once. The major place I find the snot algae is in my overflow. I just simply scoop it out with the toothbrush I use on my tank. I was waiting for more algae growth, since the cheato and skimmer are gone from my sump, but it is holding strong seemingly with just the dual reactor going since the octopus isn't broken in yet.

OH, and I caught my RO/DI jump from 0ppm to 2 ppm yesterday while making up more water. Have 2 kits coming from brs so I can change out the filters. The 5th stage one is just awful brown.

Well thats good. I have the same issue with my overflow, I just clean it out from Time to time. I almost use it as a mini algae scrubber, it's just removing nutrients in the tank and it isn't harming anything. I really need to buy a tds meter, haven't checked mine.. Ever.
