    I'm battling some red turf algae with turbo snails and emerald crabs (don't want to get a scopus tang in a 20 gallon). You can see the algae to the lower left of the polyps. Look at the yellow polyps. It appears that they've taken some of the algae's color into their bases. I've seen condy...

    I have got a lot of dark red algae (I think) growing all over my rocks and some on my sand. I don't think it's cyano bacteria as it's not really slimy and doesn't scrape off very easy. It's more like a velvety coating going by feel. It's a 90 gallon tank and has been running for a couple years...

    Here are some pics of some very interesting algae that I have in my tank. I have not been able to ID either of them using as many sites as I can. I think the red thread like algae is Red Turf Algae, but I have found pictures of RTA and it is not what I have in my tank. These three are of the...

    Any idea what the red growth (i'm assuming algae is?) There is some on the snail too. Phosphates and Silicates are zero as tested by Salifert. The red is the dots on the rock and the red on the snails shell. The red in the lower right corner of the pic with the snail is coraline algae. That...
