    @UWC I'm loving this as a maintenance dose for a new tank. Glass stays cleaner than ever, chaeto is growing great, and the inevitable uglies from a new system are being kept in check. Very pleased.

    Love hearing that :) We will have a new thread coming out very soon that should peak your interest involving chaeto, vibrant, nutrients, lighting, water quality, etc :)

    One thing I didn't see was is there a particular time of day that is best to add or does it not matter?

    Congrats to Vibrant for being best vibrio implement in reefing. that's a tough standard to attain, thread hacks are diehard skeptics their bar for acceptance is only found in patterns of after pics, across multiple forum threads on tank invasion, and many many many proofs are required for full buy in. best known valonia kill in reefing, currently.

    Ok, My brown stringy snotty crap is back today, I've been dosing twice weekly too and am 5 doses in now, any reason that this should appear? or just me having absolutely no luck at all.:(

    Mine would make reappearances from time to time. Eventually it was further and further between until I barely ever see any strings.

    What are your NO3 and PO4 at? I'm guessing it is because your PO4 is undetectable.

    Patients is your best friend right now as you work through spores within the tank. 5 doses in the grand scheme of things is very little liquid used. As Brew said, what are your current nutrient readings?

    My experience so far with this on bubble algae is that it works. Not fast but eventually will thin the walls of the bubble and then they vanish. That is my experience so far.

    no3 is 6 and a debate between myself and partner re the po4, I reckoned it was .01 she reckons zero, must be my old eyes;Watching, so yes very very low or indeed zero. tested with the redsea kits, I do run nopox at 2ml per day.

    I would hold off on the nopox and see if that helps. While Vibrant has a large impact on NO3 it will reduce PO4 a little, also. If you don't have enough dying and dissolving to make up for the PO4 removal it can open the door to dino's. Vibrant can eventually take those out too but they aren't much fun while they are in the tank.

    You are using so little right now I would stop completely. Normally I would recommend reducing by no more than half to start. Big changes tend to lead to big problems imo.
