Theres this red algea growing on my sand. Its not brown algea. When i suck it up with the siphon its almost like a slime. It comes off as a layer. what is it and how do i get rid of it?

It sounds like cyano algea. What are your water parameters? If those are fine. Then you might need to get more water flow in there.

Agreed, sounds like cyano. Do you have a refugium? If not, consder setting one up- they will wick up nutrients that cyano needs to thrive. Another alternative is a phosphate removing media in a reactor (same principle.)

Maybe i will get a phosphate removing media. And with some critters to stir around that sand that should take care of it.

Nothing will eat it. It will keep coming back.There is a powder that will remove of it. I will get back to you on that. Just check your parameters and see if anything is outta wack.
