Have had this tank running a couple of months now. This stuff broke out and covered everything in a matter of days. Happened right after I added a cuc.. one of the snails had some algae on it which I guess might have seeded my tank.

Been doing weekly water changes ~15% tank volume - haven't added any chemicals or anything.

Tested phosphates and nitrates - 0's across the board - assuming false negative readings due to this stuff sucking nutrients up.

Was thinking of giving flux rx a shot.

What does this look like to you guys? GHA or Bryopsis or neither? Thanks in advance.

I’ve had my fair share of bryopsis. Feathers on that algae does not say bryopsis. Too thin and fluffy bryopsis is more like a fern than a feather. Just google it
