    I guess it's time to get that damn filter just to filter out the annoying blue lights in the photo.

    I love a nice garage tank. If you spill a little water, who cares?

    frag in sump was a pretty bad idea and since then I'm having some GHA growing on the frag plugs. now moving the plugs to the frag tank and hopefully to fight this GHA out with proper treatments.

    Bristlerooth are much better for hair algae. Tomini or kole are both good. Tuxedo urchin is good too if glass tank. Can dip plugs in hydrogen peroxide to kill it too. Not corals tho. Plugs only.

    If it's on the rack I'd get another rack so you can swap them out and let one dry out so all the algae dies off

    empty frags are out of tank. i've grouped those infested with GHA in a group for a target attack. luckily no GHA on rocks so far, just frags.

    Forgot to mention the new green bta in the main tank [​IMG]

    Since this lives in the DT, I had to move over the RBTA over to fra tank.

    Gave up and removing white egg crate from the frag tank, gha is growing all over the crate but no where else. Going to use sand to settle the plugs. But my black crate doesn’t catch the gha plague.
