    We should request a #HiR thread for people to put their wall of shame on for display and repent to the reef gods for their sins.

    Heres mine.

    At least the new skimz frag rack is getting used. ;Greedy;Hurting

    So how bad is it? Well... its this bad.

    This one does a good job of showing the algae I'm fighting. Excuse the smudge and the glare, it was in a tough spot to photo.

    This does a good job of showing how it starts to die after a Vibrant dose and then cyano grows over it.


    I've now done 3 doses on my every other day schedule and the cyano is much worse but the algae is staying even shorter. I know I can handle the cyano when I'm done so I'm pressing on.

    Time to share some not so good news with the tank. My Bryopsis has returned yet again. I thought I saw some of the small tufts popping up just before Christmas and confirmed it before I went to the Keys. It's not a big deal, but I am going to try something a little different. Typically, I use a combination of Vibrant 2x per week and a treatment of Fluco. I can have the stuff gone in 6 days. The down side is that it always comes back. The Fluco also seems to hurt my pod population. This time I'm going to try and get rid of it with Vibrant only. I know it will take a lot longer but hoping it will eradicate it completely.
    I'll take some good pictures this weekend before I up my dose so people can see exactly what these beast looks like in a tank. It doesn't look like the traditional Bryopsis. I'll try to get some pictures in the tank, a tuft pulled out on a hard surface, and some shots under the scope if there is value.
