Like many hobbyists who enjoy a matured reef tank, I too am looking for the elusive coraline algae so I can say hey my tank seems to be maturing.
Well, I bought several large turbo snails covered to some degree with coraline algae and I (against my better judgment) purchased coraline algae spores in a bottle and then I waited.
8 months in and I found my first 'speck' of coraline algae.
Yeah I know, it's really not much to write home about, but it is worth a laugh.
Last night I was just viewing the tank and I spotted a pink blemish, I had to rub my old tired eyes and look several times but yup just barely there, smaller than a pencil eraser but yup, I have coraline algae on my rocks.
As I sit here typing this I am laughing so hard.
The picture is grainy because I had to blow it up, otherwise you wouldn't see it lol
Hey everybody my tank may be maturing lol
I hope this brings a smile to some!!!
Enjoy your Labor day!!!

Congratulations .
This stuff blows my mind …
When new everyone try’s everything possible to get a little to start growing .

But .. once it starts and it needs to be scraped from the glass . I hate it and wish it was something rarely seen .
At least gha can be eradicated , this stuff never goes away .
Reaching 27” to the bottom is never a fun chore

Funny. I added a sump recently and haven’t taken out the canister filter system because the only thing growing coralline algae in my tank is the intake pipe for the canister. Cruel irony.
Scrape the coralline off the stand pipe .
it will grow everywhere eventually .
