    Thoughts so far... Not snake oil.

    Wiped out a tiny section of cyano in a back corner, wiped out my red turf algae on my rocks (which I actually wanted to keep for the tangs and angels to graze on), wiped a cool red fleshy algae in my sump, some effects on ulva but not complete tank wipe, and bubble algae about the same but I haven't seen any new ones.

    Its interesting to watch it wipe one type of algae out at a time out in the system. I'm hoping the bubble algae is its last step!

    While not a direct association since I've added 3 purple queen anthias to the tank and feeding a lot more the last month, I did notice my phosphate level go up but my nitrates stayed the same. Again, could just be because I'm feeding more for the anthias.
    That's great to hear! My cyano disappeared after I started using siporax. Unfortunately over the past 2 weeks I'm starting to see signs of it reappears on my sand. Not nearly as bad as it was before siporax but it is there none the less. Hope this will be the final cure.

    I use it my wife's little nano it has done remarkable things to it. But I dose Carbon in my 90 gal. And fighting a little cyano myself , do you think it could be used with carbon dosing and Biodigest are would that be a little much for the system.

    I be willing to bet that the Siporax will starve it out.

    All I know is don't pop the bubbles and keep the nutrients low if you get it in the system. I can 100% promise you that spores will be released if the bubbles are popped. The key is....low nutrients. Look at the PVC fitting. That was about a week after I popped the bubbles. You can see how tiny those spores were. So tiny in fact that if the camera flash wasn't on, you would never have saw them.

    It died off and stayed gone for a few months after I started Siporax. I dose carbon and bacteria on a routine schedule. I don't think it would be reappearing now if the Siporax alone was going to starve it out. The Siporax has had plenty of time to be seeded and working.

    I have been using vibrant for about 3 weeks and I can tell a big difference in my tank. When I was dosing 2 times a week it did mess with my macro algae some. Now I'm only dosing once a week

    That stuff does work. I have used it as well. I didn't really have much of an algae problem, but now I rarely have to clean the glass. I feed pretty heavy every other day.

    I didn't see any affect on any corals, fish, or inverts. Only thing I noticed was my skimmer production was a bit heavier, and my water was crystal clear. Just running carbon and GFO, no refugium/macro/etc. in my system.
