    I've recently started running my tank on NSW (two weeks) and for some reason i now have quite a bad case of diatoms algae, the tanks been running for a year before hand so I was just wondering if this is normal when first converting to NSW and how can i get rid of it?
    Many thanks

    Anytime you make changes it can trigger small outbreaks. Just let them run their course.

    ive recently been offered a lot of corals and fish from a friend that is shutting down hes tank, im just worried about taking them as he has bubble algae in it. so I just wondered if it would be ok to take them out of hes and into mine without catching anything.
    many thanks
