One piece of the live rock I bought for the tank has a pretty good patch of green hair algea, about 1" x 2", and a couple small spots of it here and there. I really wanted...

    I bought a Rasta Zoas back on 7/19 and noticed the other day it has hair algae growing on the little puck it is attached to. I have no other hair algea in the tank that I can see and all water stats are fine. How can I get rid of this?

    I went on vacation for a week and when I got home my biocube 29 was filled with red slime. It was awful. It covered probably 80% of my rock and substrate. I had long strands of it - probably 4 - 5 inches long that spanned from my rock to the intake. This is a relatively new tank - set up 5/7/12...

    I have a candy cane frag that has hair algae growing on it and makes it look like it has a beard.. I'm wondering if I can just pull it off and will it grow back or is the coral eating it?..
