He said a surprise is coming up at 5pm, so I don’t know if he will offer more % off in the leftover coral? If so, I may be picking up a beautiful little chameleon favia. :D

In my honest opinion I had the same problem with algae in the beginning stages I used this and my nutrients bottomed out first came the cyano and then dinos I think for algae just keep doing your water changes untill it stabilizes then you will see fewer algae. People here may have different opinions on it but. But for me it led to cyano and dinos. It’s going to kill all the algae and since you don’t have a skimmer all that excess nutrient is just gonna be in the tank and make things out of whack

Do you run a refugium or have any macro algae?
And remember this does not fix the cause
And follow dosing to a T. I would even dose less
I do not. I want to get one, but I don’t know how it would work, as I don’t have a sump.

That makes sense.

After @LRT explained things, I’m doing 2 water changes per week and removing algae manually as I can.
