Red Algae

    110 Gallon reef aquarium
    Protein skimmer in 40 gallon refugium/sump
    Changing 25% once a month
    Tank set up since March 09
    3 clowns,3 chromies,1 anthias, 1 yellow tank, 1 sailfin,1 mandarin goby, 1 cardinal,1 bleeny, 1 fire shrimp, 1 cleaner shrimp, snails, crabs


    I've started noticing a lot of red algae forming on the rocks and glass. I've taken some out and it just comes back again, it killed my bubble corals. I got chemiclean to remove it. It tells me to turn off skimmer and carbon filter. Do I also have to turn off the water flow from and to the sum? Is this remover safe to use?

    Thanks!!

    You should find the source of the algae. tap water, overfeeding, etc.
