Nice, glad to see it's working for the GHA.

Bump...

 

Now that it's been a little while since this thread was started, we should have some better experience/knowledge on how lasting or temporary the effects of fluconazole are...  

 

Has anyone been seeing the bryopsis recur after treatment?

For those that treated GHA with it, have those come back?

Well! I had a bit of regrowth (bryopsis) on the shell of a hitchhiking bivalve. It was notably softer and couldn't keep its structure as well, so a couple of days later I replaced carbon and a hitchhiking limpet went to town on the patch of algae. I didn't even notice it as of yesterday, so it may be gone again :)

I have had no bryopsis grow back since treatment.

 

Also, all isolated incidents of GHA and bubble algae have disappeared.

I do have a bunch of this really short, bristly stuff on a few rocks. It's new(ish).

I've noticed a shading of green in some places but the fiji and blue eyed tang are constantly scrubbing the rocks. Fighting cyano now. Ready to pull chemipure and drop the MOAB of chemiclean.

Oh, disappointing news...

Can you summarize your course of treatment?  I think you started 3 months ago with 3 pills in 30 gallons, but I don't recall how the treatment progressed.

Removing carbon is standard, but how long did you stop skimming, not do water changes?  Did you continue to use socks/filter pads/mechanical filtration, gfo, biopellets during treatment?
