Yep, bubble algae. Just rip out as much as you can right before your next water change. Piece of cake.

If you pop them in the tank, their spores will cause spawns all over. Remove the coral first, and you may want to look into peroxide dips too. There's plenty of other write-ups on benefits, risks, procedures, etc.

Is it still eating? What are your parameters? Are you sure the dendro is not splitting? Sometimes this will cause certain corals to shut down for awhile. Being that you've given the coral a dip, I think the only thing you can do now is be patient & wait. Hopefully it will bounce back to normal. GL.

Hello I am not sure but it does not look good at all ;-(. I took the bubbles out of the tank and dip the dendro on the coralx dip and it is looking worse. I found out that it may have come from the Kent Phytoplex that I am feeding my baby clam with... please help... what should I do... look at it today..

My water parameters were PH 8, amonia and nitrite 0, Nitrate 15, phosphate 0.16, calcium 440, mag 1300, Alk 12.6 (is my alk too high?) This is the highest I have ever had the alk and it may have been because of the dosing. I stopped the dosing.
I will do another test today and post the results. I did a 20% water change on the 13th. I will do another water change maybe today after I do the test...
Please help

What should be the alk?? yesterday my parameters were: PH 8.0, Alk 11.2 Amonia and nitrite 0, nitrate 8 and phosphate 0.16 Calcium 405, Mag 1240
BUT the water is very clouded after I used NOPO -X
The Dandro and the hammer looks bad. Please what should I do?

Do a 30% water change. Make sure the temp and salinity are the same as the water you're using now (assuming those are within the correct parameters)

I don't think your dendro is much affected by alk although 11 is a bit high. I would just let it come down normally through water changes.

Try to get some flow on it to stimulate it to extend its polyps so you can feed it regularly.
