Does it look like mine
yep thats the stuff and no my tang wont touch it any more
Geez Covey! That is near epic proportions! YIkes!
How often do you guys feed your tanks?
how much do you feed your fish? or maybe something died in your tank?coraline growth?I have lots of coraline growth so no chance of the green stuff.
i feed one cude of drained shrimp every 3days. i got coraline alge growing too but im starting to get the green back as well.
I would stop feeding that Tang completely. He is spoiled. I found the scientific name of that algae but I am not remembering it right now. Anyway in a scientific study conducted in Hawaii on Yellow Tangs out of 55 specie of algae that was the 5 most preferred. Your tang should be doing back flips at the site of that stuff. The Tang shouldn't be eaten shrimp away it will eventually kill him. BL that was at the height of the outbreak before I figure out it was the RO.
try getting some Scarlet Reef Hermit Crabs, yes don't feed the tang for awhile ;D how much water movement do you have?sounds like phospate problem to me.do you add anything else to the tank trace elements ect..
yeah i add trace twice a week and reef complete twice a week and kalk drip every other night. i dont feed the tang anything but he goes after the shrimp when i feed
I am still of the option that it is the wet dry.
