    Great job. The thing is that halimeda sucks up a lot of calcium. Mine is very slow grower

    My calcium is in check at 400-450, should I remove them all So my corals will get more calcium?

    They’re usually not interested in eating it since it’s a calcified algae. IME it grows really really slow for an algae.
