Mines a nightmare. Tore down the original tank as it was over run with bubble algae. Set up a new 40b with the same fish. My fish are all good. Lost 90% of my coral and 50% of my lr. The new tank is going through its ugly phase. Not sure how much more I have in my tank for the marine setups.

Lagoon 25, gonna try and build another negative space scape or something similar. Thinking of trying to plan it around being for a mandarin but may go the other way and do a nice sps dominant tank.

Nope. Slash and burn. I'm sure it had to do with my maintenance/lack there of.

Lol at least itís not as hideous as gha or bryopsis imo. Mine doesnít seem to be spreading but not really dying either. Iím removing during water changes and it seems to be helping a bit.
