Hey thanks everyone, i really appreciate it!!


Corals havent been looking too happy lately, so i'll be doing a pwc today. All the zoas arent opening up fully on that rock so i moved some. Its weird, the colony of teal palys is wilting too. Idk what is happening with those but they'll be fine in a couple days. Could be because there is some weird string algae around. Again, a pwc should help. But all sps look good so im happy bout that! And the fishy are active as usual

It looks more like bacteria than true algae. Cyano can sometimes come up like that if it grows in medium to high flow. It usually won't grow in good flow but it's been known to happen. If you can pull some of it out you should be able to tell by the consistency and the nasty odor. Can you tell one way or the other? It's hard to see properly in the pic.

I guess it could be! Never thought of that. Ya it is nasty it gets stuck on corals and sometimes the fish. It was gone for awhile but just came back a little. It is really gooey and strigy. More pwc's?

I was dealing with the same thing for a few months. I belive it to be bacteria. What I did was change from BRS GFO to Kent's marine as well as cut my lights back 2 hours a day. About three or four days later it was all gone.
