I have a brown stringy algae that seems to attach to about everything in my reef tank that I have not been able to beat yet Does anybody have any idea what it might be and how to get rid of it It blows off easy with a turkey baster I have tried everything I can think of including adding another wave maker to increase flow I went and bought a reef octopus skimmer and it is skimming wet I also bought a ro unit and am only using ro water and the most helpful thing I did is three days without lights but it did not get rid of it totally and is back like before
Its not impossible It just cost more.
Had same issue, sounds like GHA (green hair algae). Do u have a cuc? Get a couple emerald crabs and snails (reefcleaners.org). Wait a bit till ur trates go down, it'll start to go away. Look at my profile pics, u will see it. The key is getting those trates down. U have a sump?
