Sounds like Cyanobacteria. Google it, lots of info out there.

For the blenny, I'd recommend sinking pellets and frozen squid.

In the DC Metro Area? Check out GWAPA and WAMAS

We have a good article about the cyano in our SW articles section.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
