been battling dinos and a nasty bubble algea outbreak the past few weeks. About 2 weeks ago and after some research, i decided to try a 3 day lights out w a h2o2 treatment of 10ml a day and it helped a ton with the dinos, but after a few days of resuming my normal lighting schedule it came back. so im doing another 3 days lights out to see if that helps kick the rest.
I also removed the DSB in my small fuge, some of the sand was hardening and trapping a ton of detritus...figured it was doing more harm than good.
Re-aquascaped a bit removed 2 large rocks that were impeding flow on each far side of the tank. Gives the fish more swimming space and makes the tank look less dense.
Cyano still a bitch....removed as much as i could during water change
and have been blasting the rocks w a baster every other day.
zoas look like crap lately and i lost my purple tip torch to brown jelly.

had a terrible outbreak of cyano/diatoms (rusty covering all over sand and rocks) Afetr some reading i tried the 2 days lights out method to try and alleviate it. After the second day i resumed light s and the algea died back quite a bit...well see how long it takes to come back
Im also contimplating removing some rock and re scappinga bit to try and improve circulation and create a few more spots to place corals
