My tank has been suffering from an algae outbreak and I have (along with my lfs
) identified the type of algae to be bryopsis. I have been running a phosphate reactor for a month and a half, changing out the media every 10-14 days. I have seen videos on the internet about raising magnesium levels to above natural ocean levels to choke out the bryopsis but I'm not sure if its the way I should go about fighting this battle. I was considering dosing some extra magnesium and/or adding a hungry sea hare to help get rid of as much of the stuff as possible. I have seen some of the algae thin out a bit but its not really any significant impact. Some of my corals haven't been opening up very well because of this issue as well.
Phosphate: 0.06 ppm
Dose of Gfo
: 10g per 10 gallons of water. (30 gallons total)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
