Caulerpa racemosa In birds nest...

Postby colg » Fri 23 Mar, 2018 5:49 pm

Has anyone got any suggestions or ideas on how to get rid of this algae? This is the only bit in my tank and is deep inside a birds nest. Coral was near dead when it got a hold but is now healthy (on the outside at least..) for reference the SPS is about 15cm across.

I've had similar issues in the past and I picked it out using long tweezers. Bit tedious but it worked.

My Scopas tang also used to love eating Caulerpa.
