    Would be interesting to know which kind of algae it is exactly, can you please check if it is a Cladophora herpestica ?

      Yes it’s looks like Cladophoropsis herpestica or Cladophoropsis magna. Both looks similar to my algae. There is not to many information, how to get rid of this.

        I do not have experience with this kind of algae but others seem to had success with adding adult mexican turbo snails. Basically they seem to be hard remove once they started to grow so alternatively I would recommend to remove as much as possible manually regular. Additional a sea urchin Tripneustes gratilla might be helpful also.

            As long as the algae do grow I would recommend to continue dosing as follows while skip some products:

            Zeo start 0.22 x2 daily
            zeobac 2 drops 2x week
            zeofood 2 drops 1 x week
            coral snow 4ml every other day
            iron – stop dosing
            b-balance 2 ml 2 x week
            strontium – stop dosing
            Sponge power 2 drops every other day
            coral vitalizer 2 drops 4x week at night
            Bio mate 4drops 3x week
            Pohl’s extra – stop dosing
            Brightwell Aquatics lugol’s solution – stop dosing

                      Hi
                      Algae still in my tank, maybe a little less but still.
                      I did tests and
                      Po4 0
                      No3 0
                      I’m worry about to starving my corals.

                        Do you notice any kind of negative response from your corals like to light tissue, decrease of growth / polyp expansion / thin tissue ?

                        Basically if everything works well corals are really doing fine while those low nutrient levels.

                            Those corals looking healthy to me just the algae on the base can become a problem. If you like to you can add 2 ml Xtra and 2 drops Iodine 2 x weekly to the dosing regimen of post #35

                            Make sure to keep the basic water parameters solid within the recommended levels including potassium.
