So I've been in the hobby for 3 years, I have a 90 gallon mixed reef that has been very successful.
I recently started up a 13.5 fluval evo nano, I used all established live rock from my 90 gallon system sump. The tank inhabits 2 clowns, an urchin and a narcissus snail, plus a few zoa frags, everything is doing great its been running for a month with no issues other than a slight diatom bloom from using new live sand, that's done and over with, now I'm dealing with what I believe to be bryopsis, I will attach a picture.
Anyway I want to treat it with fluconazole but here in Canada I can only find it in the local drug store, it's marketed for vaginal yeast infections, I'm just worried that this is not the same ingredients as you would find in say reef flux? Would anyone be able to clarify if this life brand of fluconazole would also be reef safe? I'll attach a picture with the medicine and ingredients.

Thanks for the help!

I’d be worried about the inert ingredients . Not sure . Can you order from a online source up there ??? If not check out BRS supply or seek out local coral farms ,fellow reefers , reef clubs like this one to see if someone may sell ,trade, or share some with you . Good luck !!!:cool: One more is to try manualremoval and cuc , I’ve used tuxedo urchins in the past with much success . They seem to eat it when they decimate the other algae in the tank , depending how much you have it will take a little time . Then the doc sea slug works
