I dosed Vibrant several times with some good results, but algae still grows. I know it will look great over time, but long term will not solve my nutrient issues. I know managing a refugium is going to be a better solution long-term. I did not realize how detrimental it was to Macroalgae and have already ordered some Red Ogo for my refugium. How long since my last dose should I wait to put the Macroalgae into my sump?

In my case with a recent large cleanup and heavy dosing, it was maybe a month at least.

In my case I tested it with some chaeto, and although it didn’t kill it outright, it basically just didn’t grow. Once the glass started to need regular cleaning the chaeto took off.
 

Do you quarantine new coral before adding it to your reef tank?
