    So I purchased some frags, and I also purchased some coral rx dip and dipped them. However after reading the instructions it doesnt look like it would cover green algae. I am not sure if it is, but I want to make sure so I do not take the risk of crashing my tank or having an outbreak. Here...

    I have noticed that my nantank has grown some red blobs - they look pretty. However, I've also noticed that nearby, some dull green slime algae have appeared. Are they the same thing? Should I get rid of all these growths?
