Just touching on some typical offenders in cases like yours. Maybe we can find a fix and once it's back under control ull have a long term grip on keepin it down from now on.
its 100% indicated since the sandbed will cloud massively if we reach in and drop test, and the rocks could be easily cleared externally, outside the water, sitting on the counter, with peroxide spray and some toothbrushing to clear this initial growth plugging up all the pores in the rock. its simply unideal to use any means of killing that rock algae, and letting it rot internally to compile with the current waste loading, we need mass export here- a reef storm.
So first remove sand and then move on to the rockI once had a poster use will to clear their whole tank in one pass, we linked that as first read in our thread to reward resolve.
three mos later since the first pass didnt fully remove their work for the life of the reef, they let it forest back up. had to remove link, it was one off resolve. we're full on
we work until we dont have to work, but we dont let lack of preventative steps keep the plants in the dominant position.
