is this good algea??
more of the really dark purple is what im talking about ?!
Ouch, my neck!
But seriously.. the purple (not the darkest purple) is corailline algae. The darker stuff doesn't look like it. I'm not sure of what it is, but someone here will. Does it feel fuzzy? Is it grown in clumps?
haven't touched it . lol.. it looks kinda "flaky"
is it cyanobacteria?
The dark does look like cyno,if it rubs off easily that's what it is.
is it anywhere else?
if it is .. what would you guys recommend the best way to get rid of this..
I got a 29 g biocube hqi ,lights on for about 7 hours.

reefkeeper lite. fuge with chato in it .. protein skimmer that comes with this biocube..
always weekly water changes about 20 % R/O water mixed perfect.
