i said it before and ill say it again. dose hydrogen peroxide. my reccomendation doesnt come from something i read, but from experiance. i still once a week dose. helps keep orp levels up as well. more then likely your rock is leaching and causing your problem with the hair aglea.

Mg is now at 1370ppm, by tonight it will be at 1450ppm.

Kole tang and anthias are both happy. Tang has been picking at the rock and the hermits have been busy as well. Overall, looks like stuff is turning around! I will post some photos later.

Hope to see more pics of the tank soon. I started up my 40 gal Nuvo in January and it has taken about 5 months to fully cycle and kill off all of the GHA. Worst I've ever dealt with the stuff was so long I could yank it right out with the roots lol. All is good now best of luck with it slow and patient wins the race.

Also increasing MG will not necessarily kill off the HA. People say it's something in kents magnesium that kills it off hopefully you're using that brand of Mg.

I added a 2nd hydor, the smallest one. Also been spending lots of time going after the small patches of hair algae that show up. Corals are doing great. My acro frags have started extending their polyps.

I will post some photos as soon as I clean the glass.
