    Rick how long did yours take to go away? I think I read about 3 weeks for hair algae.

    Great to hear Rick. I'm optimistic this will work based in all that I have read.

    Day 3 algae looks to be Browning with a little bit of white tipping. Nothing major yet.

    Looks like u needs more water flow, regular weekly water change. Get more turbo snails, that should take care of ur problem!

    That spot has a lot of water flow. Seems the hair algae is most dominant where there is a lot of flow. Also the whole nutrients issue has been baffling me. PO3 and Po4 both have been zero. I have had such a hard time raising my nutrient levels. I finally got my nitrates up to .02 and my sps finally started to color up. I have had lots of turbos, trochus and other snails and they seem to just go to the glass. I finally got a Kole tang and a rabbit fish who seem to be helping in the fight.

    No photo update today got busy with work but bryopsis is turning whiter. Hair Algae which is my bigger issue is browning in color and also slowly getting white. It still has a long way to go but excited to see what day 14 looks like. Will update with photos tommorow.

    Day 6

    Bryopsis is dying quickly almost all white. Hair algae is also starting to fade and turning brown/white. Things are moving in the right direction.

    Fish look good and healthy and so do the corals. No bad effects on my chaeto either.
