    Shading brypsis algae

    I have alot of bryopsis algae I am battling. I think I am winning but it is slow. Presently I am keeping a highish alk/ ph and am manually removing as much as my fingers can grab every 2-3 days along with a reduced photoperiod (around 10 hrs).

    I was thinking about reducing the photoperiod even lower to about zero for everywhere but the corals by covering the live rock infested with plates, bowls or just shading the light with cardboard. Has anybody tried this? Anyone forsee any problems?

    BTW phosphate undetectable, also have slowed my feeding schedule.

    Thanks. Just want some advice before I do something that could be detrimental...

    I can't seem to find any in Canada. I have also heard that they are pretty small and it would take alot of them.

    Anyone had any success with them?
