    Okay so I know there is some bubble algae but what is this green leafy stuff? Not wide spread but was growing on some rubble rock in my frag tank and on some frag plugs.

    I pulled the rock and frag plugs out and was able to swap out the frags onto new plugs.

    So it looks like a macro but it killed 2 frags. My tang doesn't touch it. I think I got most out. There is some on the back of a power head I will clean those today.

    Thanks VIn, I run a fuge and it is packed My phos is 0, I do feed decent but I also have a killer skimmer and also run GFO and Carbon. What strange is where it grew. Might have come in on a frag plug. I changed all the plugs on the rack and got 90% of it. At least at this point it is not in the DT,

    okay so how do I get rid of it. I changed all my plugs, its growing on my power heads and returns. it already grew back on the new frag plugs and dont want it choking out my frags.
