Hi all Can someone help with this ? Is it coraline ? I don't think it is cyano as it's hard and not like an algae. My problem is that it is grown in and over my zoa's as you can see from pic 3. I read a thread saying that this can happen but how do I stop it ? HELP lee

Yes that's coraline algae. It's growing over your corals?

I had the same issue with zooa's awhile ago, the coralline just grew up and over the polyps. :-( I wasnt dosing anything either. I was told at the time that it doesnt happen but clearly it does. lol Not sure what the solution is....is there a plate of coralline? Maybe you could chip it off right before it gets to the zoo's

Not dosing calcium and calcium readings are a little lower than normal if anything. Can't see how I chip away at this has happened on 3 different rocks around the tank.
Any other ideas or help to curb it would be great I have moved a couple of bits to another tank so hopefully u can rescue them.
