Diatom city. Despite water changes, decreased feeding, and a shorter photo period diatoms are covering everything.

Side question.... does anyone target feed their favia?

Do diatoms hurt anything? Do they use nitrates?

Diatoms are perfectly normal. I had them in freshwater and saltwater tanks

Indeed. I'm using pfs and my freshwater tank with it had an outbreak for about a month. Hopefully these will burn out soon. I have not added a cuc.

I've been out of town for a week. I had to leave my light schedule up to the roomie. I hope she follows it as I haven't had time to set it on timers.

I was in Boston earlier this week and now I'm in San Francisco

I'd say diatoms or algae.

Me thinks so as well...


Got some rough news today that had me distracted. I ended up doing a water change today and the salt was mixed incorrectly. My Duncan is livid. The favias, zoas, and shrooms seem to be OK.
