Very nice looking tank. Your corals look happy. My algae problem is simple...I like feeding my fish! Oh well....off to change the water again......
Lol yep thats pretty much it right there I could probly starve out the bryopisis but then it starve everything and I figure I like lotsa food so do they lol

Day 10

So blue life Flux rx does work but light makes it work alot faster and may be the key as to it even working there are still a few spots left that are in extreme shade no clue how it's even growing as I had to use a flashlight to take a picture it's so dark

Any way so by day 3 80 percent was gone by day 5 90 percent with only the stubborn spots as seen in these photos left day 10 they are slowwwwwly dying off I have done 1 10 gal water change last week and will do a 5 on Friday and 5 next Friday replacing men's each time in New water then I will see how things look at that time to see about removing mods

So far no coral stress or loss hope it stays this way have continued to spot feed ever Friday about 2 hours before water change have also added some new that seems to be doing well water to get it in while tank is being treated so once treatment is done nothing else enters the tank without treatment in corentein for at least 2 weeks but I'd say a month
