So it turns out that a whole bunch of what I thought was coralline is actually cyano
. I have quite a bit of actual coralline on the rock that I got to seed my tank that I just assumed the cyano
was new coralline, since it did look really crusty and opaque. I was wrong.
I just started a tank blackout and I changed my matrix Carbon and PhosGuard to maximize their efficiency. I'm going out tomorrow to get an RO
unit and I'll be doing a water change as well as physical removal once I've got that set up.
This is still early stages, and I'm far from an outbreak/takeover, but I'm doing such an aggressive treatment to nip it in the bud. Any advice?
