Hello,

A few of my corals recently started growing bubble algae. Any tips on how to eliminate it? Thank you very much!

Get some emerald crabs from ReefTopia. Make sure that your export matches your import and that your N and P are not climbing. Remove some by hand if you can. Get an urchin or two if your tank has other types of soft algae - these will eat coralline once the soft algae is gone so some people hate them (the ones without coralline) and some people love them (the ones with coralline).

If you have the room for a naso they love valonia. Every one I've ever had preferred it over almost any othe food, fresh or frozen.

My Naso loves it. I’ve moved some rocks and he swooped in and ate it all. Didn’t even wait for my hand to come out of the tank.
