    I have a 25 gallon tank, about a year old now. Bubble Algae is becoming something abundant. I have 2 clown fish that like to sleep in the Xenias toward the bottom of the tank at night. One yellow tang and a fire goby. And hopefully by the end of the day - a lawnmower blenny. I'm wary about crabs...

    I had these in my tank in the past but then they went away for a couple months and now they're back. They look like shiny green bubbles stuck to the LR. I pushed on one and it took a fair amount of pushing to collapse so these things are not soft. They look almost like tiny hollow marbles...

    I attached a picture of this stuff, its coming up everywhere, all over my live rocks. Some of it even has like a string holding a bubble. All my tests are fine. 55 gallon PH is at 8.3 Ammonia 0-0.25 Nitrite 0 & Nitrate 0, temp is at 77.5 Is it good or should I be worried? Thanks

It a AP24 with a Coralife 96W PC, a Magnum HOT, and 2 Hydror Nanos. Anyhwoooo, I have a nicely manicured lawn on the right side...

    and I bet half of you will say "well duh ... we knew that" ... but dont bust my bubble anyway. I once read that some use a turkey baster to blast the rocks. So I inserted a 3/4" T into the return line of the sump pump. Then I put 2 ball valves in ... one on each outlet of the T. The...

    OK ... so I noticed a dozen green bubble algae sprouting up on a couple rocks .. so I went to the LHWS and found 2 all plastic brushes for $1.25 each. I heated and bent the handle at 90 degrees then cut one short so it can dig in the holes. In the sump I connected a mesh bag to the incomming...

    Hi guys, I am posting this on behalf of my parents since I am visiting them right now. They have a very well-established (5+ years old) 6 foot long marine tank, sand bottom, with fish and coral. Recently they've gotten a pretty bad aiptasia infestation, which I guess started when one...

    Well things were looking bad for the inhabitants of the plastic tub basement reef ... so today was moving day. The 46 would not come up above 70 degrees so i stole the heater from the plastic tub ... it took 2 hrs for the 46 to heat to 75 and during that time the tub dropped to 68. I moved the...

    I'm thinking about adding an Emerald crab. I have a bit of Green Bubble algae, Grape Calourpa, & Hair algae. Too risky?

    I just added an emerald crab to take on the green bubble algae but it may have clipped my Xenia, which it has been hanging around recently The two Xenia stalks I had are wilted over and it looks like some of it's tissue has come out of the stalk in a couple of places. Does look to good but I...

    I noticed some green bubble algae about a month ago. Then I noticed a little more, and a few more after that.....So now it's getting out of hand. I know that emerald crabs eat it. I also know that emerald crabs have big claws. I'm leary of putting one in with my ponies, but I want to do...

    I'm pretty sure what I just saw on one of my frags I got last week from a fellow member is bubble algae. So far it's about 1/2 the size of a grain of rice. However, there are about 20 beautiful purple zoo's surrounding it so I don't know how I'm going to get rid of it without hurting the zoo's...
