    pretty sure its cyano. Having a little bout of it myself. Chemiclean works wonders but follow the directions. Or/and figure out the food source ie your expanded feedings. Also could try some purigen thats what I am going to do this week.

    i love the pink and green i guess it is a milli. and the green zoas with the speckles

    sorry about your algae. can you put your zoas up off the sand in a rack for awhile? seems like it would help but i dont know.

    the red slime remover does work but like said above follow the directions.

Usually dino's are a slimy light brown and the bubbles are connected by strings, but it still could be dino's. I know slime algae, cyano, is usually deep red or black/green, but I have read that it can be green as well. I have used red slime remover in my tank successfully, but it will make your skimmer go nuts for a few days. I have used it after I did a water change and sucked out as much of it as possible first. Added the red slime remover and turned off the skimmer. After 2-3 days I did another water change and turned the skimmer back on.

    If it is dino's, the lights off technique works, but stresses the corals. Turn your lights off for 3 days..make sure there is no sunlight or ambient light from the room that gets in. cover the glass if needed. After 3 days, start with the actinics for a few hours the first day and SLOWLY add more lighting hours until you are back up to your normal schedule. I did this in the past, it worked, but I turned lights on too quickly and bleached a few sps. good luck!

    BTW...what are these called?

    Hi Andy,

    I tried the lights out twice it puts a dent but does not eliminate the problem. May be I need to give it one more attempt. Those zoas are called chronos might.

    Rob and Jamie, I tried to treat it for cyno but have not tried any chemicals yet just the natural way. May be I need to try it. What has been your success rate on this one also what is purigen?

    The pink is hot pink digi and the green is ATL pink tulip. I have tried that but the algae covers the rack as well so it does not help.

    that sucks, lol about it covering the rack too. there have been times that i have to scrub frags with a toothbrush every few days.

    purigen is a little bag of resins. about 17$ and you put it in a hob or sump and it treats 100gal. it is also rechargable. when it turnes brown you clean it in bleach and use a chlorine remover after and put it back. i just bought some myself about a week ago so i dont know the results yet.

    I started Microbacter7 today, lets see if It can reduce the nutrients to kill the algae. I am hoping to see some improvements in 1 week time. Will keep you guys posted.
