I have a few very small spots of hair alg...or what appears to be hair alg. I was wondering if I could put some super glue ontop of it, to help kill it. Would this work? Or the puddy stuff??

Thanks,

Josh

no that is not a cure for hair algae--besides if you super glue the rock then that part is useless for the growth of corraline algae--that most reefers want to encourage

how long has you tank been cycling
it just recently then the hair algae is growing because it is consuming phosphates and nitrates from the curing of your live rock
It should disappear after the rock is cured and its food source is gone

If this tank has been cycled then here are some tips for fighting algae
