I'm trimming the caulerpa once or twice a week now.  Gracilaria is getting super full as well so will need to trim at some point (but I'm liking how it looks right now).

 

Got replacement blue hypnea but again it took a beating during shipping and lost most of it.  I have a tiny patch left that I'm hoping will pull through.  But we shall see.

I’m so jealous of people that so easily grow macro. I still can’t manage it and I feed the crap out of my tanks. I wish I had your gift!!

I wish it were easy.  I'm dosing macro fertilizer, ferrous iron, nitrates, phosphates, and sodium carbonate (alk) to keep these guys and gals happy.  😪

You can’t do that in a reef tank can you? I have nutrients always, I dosed that chaetogro stuff and fed the algae directly. Tried an algae reactor.  Nothing works. I’m a complete failure at macro ☹️

Bummer!  I'm doing Brightwells products for everything except for Alk, so yes should be fine in reefs.

I looked into all of that this last time but only went with the chaetogro. I *may* try again at some point, after the big tank is fully scaped and settled in. I haven't even gotten finished cycling all the new rocks so the final look of the tank hasn't happened yet. I'm waiting on the reef scaping fairy to pay me a visit and draw me a lovely diagram of what to do (probably in crayons) because I have no imagination for this. Been looking at articles about it and pictures all day. No inspiration forthcoming. Also hurts that half the rocks are already went and have corals grafted to them.

I never thought the red algae would outgrow the green, your iron consumption must be massive 😁

I’ve been giving the red a hand by constantly pruning the green.

Thank you!  Based on my dosing, I think my daily consumption is around 0.5 dKH.
