Tuxedo urchins and chitons do a great job controlling coralline. I have 3 tuxedos and plenty chitons in my 90g and they cleared my back wall of coralline and my rocks too. Too well, in fact.Time for some updates.
Nothing has changed since the restart of the tank with acros. Daily using AF Probiotic bacteria at 3 drops, AF liquid polymer which is carbon source(np pro) 3 drops. 2 ml KZ Flatworm Stop, 1ml KZ Pohls Extra, and every other day, AF Build at 3 drops. Fish are fed once per day with frozen foods.
I have dealt with tuffs of hair algae, it persists, but manual removal weekly, I suspect the fuge and acros will dominate for nutrients at some point and starve it out over time. The fuge is teeming with life, the stomatellas, mysis, isopods, copepods, micro stars, limpets all thriving.
My back glass was scraped today, and nearly covered in coraline, just scraped a month ago, so it's becoming a pita! A good problem to have I guess, but do not want a coraline back drop, takes away from a super clean look, and that's important to me, lol.
Not sure about nutrients, my method is coloring corals nicely, they are all polyped out 24/7.
Later on I am going to get some more pics up, especially some of the new ones.
Colors look great Perry!
Unreal Perry!! It's coming along so nicely
That goner frag is now throwing branches and is getting some nice raspberry color, liking the trend
Looking good! I love it when they start throwing out branches, they seem to accelerate at that point and you really can see them grow day to day.This one continues to amaze me, it's in its final spot in the tank. I believe it will be a show piece at some point
Here's a side shot from today, throwing branches, lol
It would've been easy to throw that one away too nice work Perry!

Tank is looking great Perry! Love the two islands. This tank is going to be wall to wall in a year!! Following along!
