    After newly posted articles are popping up all over the internet of people having success fully killing away ANY amount of bryopsis in their tanks within a 15 day treatment of Flucozanole (a specific yeast infection medication), i decided to give it a whirl. only problem is that everywhere i...

    OK so our tank is coming along nicely. After our unfortunate loss of Mr. Stripey we've decided to let the tank go barren for 2 months to kill the Ich. Any new additions are quarantined and treated with copper (LFS definitely has crypto), and not any of that other "all natural ich control" crap...

    Before I dose MG to increase it to 1500, do you guys think this is GHA or bryopsis? Please let me know!

    Hey TRT, I'm currently battling some Green Hair Algae, and it seems like Team Algae just got some reinforcements... :( Is this Bryopsis growing through some of the GHA? Thanks.

  12. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Hello fellow reefers. I justed wanted to share my seeming victory over the ugly plague of bryopsis. I am not speaking of hair algae, but rather the feathery type that is some of the most stubborn algae I've ever encountered. In my searches of dealing with bryopsis, it seems some confuse it...
  13. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    I have been fighting an outbreak of bryopsis for 3-4 months now, and I was wondering if anyone had found any tricks or additions to defeat the algae. I have been manually removing it, but I would like some way to eradicate it, especially on the rocks I am moving to a new tank. Not really...

    My 29 gallon reef tank is almost 5 months old. It is fully stocked at this point (but I may add some more corals at some point). I have 2 ocellaris clowns and a six line wrasse. A CUC of 7 turbo snails and 7 blue leg hermits, as well as a hitchhiker short spine urchin (who is great at eating...

    Ok I have bryopsis in my tank I was trying to get rid of it with massive frequent water changes. That didn't work so I pulled the rocks and hydrogen peroxide dipped and brushed them, that worked for a little bit but it came back I kept up with the water changes and added a bigger skimmer to my...

    So I have noticed over the past few days that I am starting to grow Bryopsis on my sand, glass and LR. I have done some searching and was reading that TechM is the most common control method used. It seems that raising the Mag levels to just north of 1800 is what is to be done. Does this in...

    I started with dead rock, been dead for at least a year, dead carribsea sand, in a brand new 210 with a 125 sump. I was hoping to get the tank to cycle before moving my livestock from a jam packed 90 gal mixed reef. I added a diversity pack from Garf to get it cycling and a handful of fish...

    It's tiny, about 3mm high, so It took me forever to take a picture of it. I suddenly got worried it's not hair algae as I initially thought, because my snails won't eat it, they meticulously scrub around it. :doh:
  19. General Reef Discussion
    Well I think I have found out something about my tank.... Bryopsis Plumosa... what I have got...
  20. General Reef Discussion
    SO I was thinking about taking out these couple of pieces of rock that have this Bryopsis on them, do ya think it would be OK to either take them out and leave them out of the water for some time, or maybe just boil them for awhile? Whats the best way to do this? I figure either way I'll have to...
