So my tank has had dinos for a few months, going from good to bad good to bad to worse, with recently being REALLLY bad. Here is a pic from a month or two ago.

And here is what it looks like now.

To be honest, im really not sure what I did. I manually removed it now and then.

the biggest changes were

1. I started feeding reef roids to up my nutrients and get my corals lookin nice and happy

2. I got a ball of chaeto for my fuge as algae had killed off my previous chaeto. The chaeto two weeks later has quadrupled in size and is close to filling my fuge.

im not sure if the chaeto is outcompeting the dinos or if the reef roids gave algae a kick start to outcompete it, but either way im glad its gone!

well it looks great and nice job. sharp reef turnaround I like those before and after type posts.


there should be a reef tank rehab show seriously. on tv. not building new tanks, rehabbing currently messed up ones or any type of aquarium.
