I all, I recently had another thread because of some type of slime algae that took over my tank. To make a long story short I was having to physically clean my gorgonian just about every single day, I have some before and after pictures below, my question is, the gorgonian doesn't seem to be blooming as it used to and I wanted to know how I can tell if it was damaged or not from me cleaning it constantly. I seem to have the algae growing on it under control, it's been a few days since it has been covered.
This is what it looked like prior to the algae infestation (for lack of a better term)
This is how it looked the day after I cleaned it off
This is how it looks now
