    Default Battling Cyanobacteria and Hair algae

    I am ready to start fighting the good fight and reduce the Cyanobacteria in the tank. It looks like a solid piece of algae layer stuck pretty good. What are method you guys use? Cuc chemical warfare? Give me ideas I am willing to experiment. I am currently doing NOPOX and it’s reduce the algae what else can I do?

    I got rid of my cyano by increasing my NO3.

    I'm going to try the Reef Flux by ReefHD followed by a large water change. It's Fluconazole.

    ChemiClean may wipe out your pod population. Might effect your snails too.

    Hey, I haven't checked the forums in a while so I didn't see this, but I would've gave you my leftover chemiclean that I used on my previous tank! It seemed to get rid of the cyano. The only thing though is the hair algae took over after that, which is why I didn't transfer any rocks over when I set up my new tank.
