    Question Have you seen these before?

    Hi Everyone.
    Lately my tank is going through a lot of changes.
    Recently I see a lot of algae that I haven't seen before.
    Are any of you aware of these algae?
    Here is the photo.

    looks cool, nice color?
    if all is stable i'd be happy

    Indistrial Outlaw had some really cool 'plate' coraline algae, it was in disc's stacked on top of each other. it was on all the cords and filters so it was really really cool because unless you followed to to te heater or whatever lookes like a mini reef shelf.
    Who says Dogs are the only creature that's happy to see you?

    can't be good, is that all cyano covering your side window?
    I'd do a few water changes. And check all parameters.

    Peehair do you know what they are? When you say can't be good is that interms of the apearance or the health of the tank?

    I don't really think it is anything to worry about- I'm familiar with that algea but don't know its name. Probably just another phase in the ever changing reef landscape.
    Are you using purified water, or tap water for make up and water changes?

    nope i have no clue what its called or any info on it but i had a friend who had this exact stuff in his tank and he too was having problems with different types of algae growth. When his tank started to look better and had the various algaes under control that one was no longer there. He might of broke it off and it never grew back perhaps because his water quality was better or something else who knows.
