Well that sucks. :/

Any clue why it causes algae?

@BeltedCoyote, it's supposed to improve overall coral health/color.

my guess would be it provides certain nutrients which do help coral but also could boost up algae. I wouldn’t write it off until you see an uncontrollable bloom come up.

Exactly. Keep it for later, but get your hair algae under control first.

Ok, how exactly am I supposed to do that?;Bucktooth

The only place I have GHA in the whole tank, is those two rocks. It's not really an "issue" if I have it under control?;Bored;Bookworm

Toothbrush and turkey baster works to keep it minimized while your nutrients stabilize:)

manual removal is what I see most people recommend. That and have CUC that eats it and/or fish. Don’t know what options you have with regards to fish with a nano.

but essentially yes, if you have it under control I wouldn’t stress. That’s the mindset I have at least as I get my reef set up. I made a post that touches on this in my build. Check it out if you haven’t yet

i will admit with a nice torch that glows in some blues…I can get behind it.

I also can’t judge. I’m such a Star Wars nerd I want to find a nice scale model of a Death Star or star destroyer and let it get covered in encrusting corals

I want a tank full a corals but lfs here have aiotasia filled tanks
So does my LFS... wonder why they don't put some filefish in their frag tanks...

When I got my cinnamon palys, the ONLY reason why I got them, is because it had an apatsia on it.

I know, I know, it sounds stupid, but it's true.

I though, "Oh wow! What a great deal! A rock with 2 kinds of coral!"... well... not exactly James...

The LFS worker didn't even warn me, when I asked if it was included. She was just like, "Um... I guess so?".

I have learned my lesson.;Dead

I told you how James i promise its a rock full of bacteria. Take it out. Scrub it and rinse in system water. Id do it everyday if I could. Everytime you do that it will lose a little more ground.
Bo had a good idea to but I'd be putting the rock through boot camp.

Dig the artwork, still say IPAs taste like fancy soap though

Man, people are setting off fireworks. Just heard a boom in the distance. Rusty lifts his head and locks eyes with me. Really wish I could be like doctor Doolittle and comfort him
Mary's tails transdermal cbd. + Hamilton, real loud. That's how we keep Skeletor chill during fireworks.

Need a sanity check here. Got a tracking number from Reef cleaners this morning ~9am for a package of snails. Tracking shows for delivery Friday. That's three days. Is it normal to send cuc snailish mail?
I order from them all the time and it usually comes earlier than estimated, and he usually overfills the bags so even with a little dieoff you get plenty. With that said, I haven't seen a lot of die off, even with it sitting in the metal box in FL. I also have an order that shipped today from them scheduled for Friday delivery.

Bought a bumblebee army.

About to let slip the dogs of war!
Or whatever farm animals of war....
