    Is it algae?

    Two weeks ago I upgrade my light from 20w to 130w.

    There''s tiny spot of coraline.

    The brown diatom is long gone and the hair algae as just left.

    NOW, I have new kind of green algae but this time it''s groing olny on my lace rock and it look like a carpet,fine tiny spot with some area more dense green.

    And on my oder rock some BLACK stuff??????
    Look like some kind of algae.

    Need some output here:ummm:

    tnx

    how new is the lace rock? If it is new how well did you clean it befor you added it to the tank? Lace rock usually is shipped into LFS with a decent amound of stuff still alive on it. It is very comon to have strange fungus and such to grow off of it after it is added. If it is not new at all i will have to try to come up with a different answer. One last question, why did you use lace rock?

    Look nice for the price, but dont get me wrong, I did''int choose it because of the price... and wen I''ll add some live rock they will turn into live rock.

    And for the black algae, I found my anwser in a book....and it turn out that its bacteria cos:blush: of poor water quality. hum hum!

    Hey, Adam, I was at the Bermuda zoo and aquarium. Very cool. I couldn't get the scarlet macaw to leave my shoulder and he attacked my boyfriend whenever he came near me.
