Now that I think about it, dosing to 1600 is not a big deal going at 100ppm a day. That's just a few days. It's keeping it there for a few weeks as it kills the bryopsis.

Anyway. I guess no WC during the treatment plan as that will be counter productive.

Well the tech m will be in tomorrow or Wednesday. Wish me luck.

Just put in my third dose. I should be about 1600 PPM tomorrow (or whenever it does its thing after this dose). Already I notice some things.

No new groth since I started dosing. Small pieces that started to grow on the rocks/glass last week have died. Pieces that I tried to cut but could not get all the way are starting turn brown or white. A nice chunk that i did not cut is still a healthy green. I know it takes a good two weeks or so to be safe but hey, this is progress.

Maybe Ill have fish by Christmas!!!!!!

BTW I love watching hermit crabs. So funny watching them fall over and cower into their shells then poke their little heads out like "what happened???????"

My margaritas decided to be lazy me thinks. None of them are going back to the top rocks anymore. seems like they are always hiding in the rockwork. I even check after the lights go out and during the day when they are out.

The diatoms make the tank look so nasty, cant wait untill they dissapear. Im gonna up the CUC a little once the Mg treatment is done. I cant wait for the blood shrimp :)

Quick update at the almost 1 week mark. I have seen little to no new growth on the glass and lower rocks. I trimmed everything as best as possible and then "spot shot" whatever was left with more kent m. I may have overdone the mg a little as my readings are around 1850 but I dont see that as being an issue. The main growth is continuing to slowly turn white. No losses in snails or hermits from what I can tell.

Parents ordered me a tuzne osmolator for christmas. I figured Id go big as this is the one piece of equipment that I can buy for this tank that can be used for a larger tank down the line. Plus I was really bad with remembering top off so I dont want to have those swings as I add fish and coral. I will still update my skimmer some time next year but I think its OK now (plus there is not alot of bioload) and the sound does not bother us.

I also removed the chemi pure and purigen as I did not want those to remove the trace element in the tech m that is considered part of the bryopsis removal.

Im going to give it another week to see if what I see dies. Then Ill still let it go another week or two to make sure all the spores in the rock crevices are dead so this wont come back again. If the main growth does not die by next week, or I see new growth I may shoot it with hydrogen peroxide. I also killed the lights so maybe that will help
