    What type of algae is this?

    Hi there! Can anyone help me out and identify the type of algae this is? My current solution has been to try to scrub it out of the rocks but in some places, it is in the crevices and it makes it very difficult, especially with the amount that exists. Someone had suggested it is purple algae...

    New reef questions

    Hello all! So I used to have a reef tank and had a very “text book” cycle, ammonia rises, then nitrite, then nitrate, then a big diatom bloom and a die off. This time around I had the same chemistry, but no diatoms, it went straight to a dusting of green algae. It’s been about two months and a...

    Need help identifying these hitchhikers

    Fairly new tank. I just bought my first corals and I used a coral dip before putting them in my tank. It removed most hitchhikers (I think) but there a few large ones that I can see and I am wondering if anyone can identify them and let me know if I should keep them or remove them. One of them...

    Going from 0 to 2.5 nitrate is causing a lot of algae problems.

    I’ve had 0 nutrients in my 40 breeder for a long time because I only have 3 small fish in the system, after my corals have started losing colors I started heavier feedings and got my nitrate up to 2.5 and phosphate to .25 and the colors look better than ever but I’m starting to get a lot of...

    Weird growth

    So I have an all coral tank as of right now and out of the blue I noticed a strange growth behind my frogspawn. I don’t know weather this is dangerous or if it is some sort of coral. It is colored purple/blue with orange dots

    Sky high No3 and Po4 but no algae

    My 350 reefer was restarted about 15 months ago. I am in the middle of a slow transfer to my upgraded tank a Waterbox 230. I had my fish in the Waterbox but managed to get some itch so after a 12 day tank transfer I put the fish back into the 350 so that I could leave the Waterbox fallow for...

    misc. algae & macro in refugium (in sump)

    in the ideal world, we would love to have only Chaeto (or some prefer Caulerpa) in their fuge (sump) but in saying that, if worst come to worst, the refugium is filled with all sort of misc. algaes i.e. GHA, Caulerpa, Chaeto, Red Dragon, Bryopsis .. does it really matter? I mean as long as they...

    Is this hair algae?

    Hi all, As this is my first reef tank I'm learning as I go. I assume this is hair algae? (see attached) It's currently just on that rock, but I'm sure will spread if allowed. :) Thanks!

    Still Not ID’ed...Diatom? Bacterial Bloom?

    I thought I’d ID’ed this stuff as Licmophora sp. but now that I’ve let it grow out, I’m not so sure. It’s a brown-ish white looking feather protruding from the live rock in mostly high light intensity areas and emerging from what looks like existing algae. Salinity: 1.025 Temp: 78.6 Ammonia: 0...
