    This is my first post on this forum, but I have been using this site for research ever since I started my reef tank about 8 months ago. I have a 28g jbj nano cube with CF lighting. I have just recently added a tunze protein skimmer on a couple of days ago to get better water quality. about a...

    I've been battling red bubble algae lately, so I'm not sure if this odd growth on what I'm guessing was a wild caught pipe organ is more bubble algae or if it's something different. The appearance is odd, with big flat "leaves" that sort of branch out. It actually looks quite nice in the tank...

    I've noticed what seems to be a purpley/magenta/maroon colored bubble algae growing in my tank. For the past couple of days, it has had an increasingly opaque look to it and it looks like the bubble is getting a coat of coraline? Anyone ever seen this before? the rock on which this is occuring...
