Is it only on the plugs? If so you may be able to dip just the plugs in peroxide to slap it around before it becomes an issue.

Well the enchinata I just fragged it three ways so that two are free of it and the other has a small spot. The birdsnest is on a rock which I've fragged it down into 7 beautiful looking clean frags so I may just dip that one but I'd hate to harm the mother colony cause its become a very nice piece. I've been slowly lowering my nutrient levels to near zero and raising reef levels back up so I've actually been seeing a good decline in all my algae.

Lol thanks, they look amazing. Once I get my tank fixed, I might take u up on that offer.

My parents are buying the 150gpd filter extension thingy to cut down on waste water for the rodi unit. Mainly because it'd save them money on the water bill. Thanks mom and dad lol!! I really didn't realize how expensive this thing was. The energy bill must be scary.

... I don't know why, but for some reason, there is very, very little bryopsis now. A lot died off since December. Which means... Another clarkii clownfish?

Honestly if I were you I would be patient and wait for it to nearly completely disappear since it was such an infestation before that way I'd the one fish does put u over the line you'll have much more time to correct the situation again instead of a yr long algae battle lol.
