Going to install a sump on Saturday with a new eshopps skimmer and attach a coralife UV sterilizer to the return line and see if it does any damage.

Will keep updated.
I've been doing repeated 3 day blackouts. No effect until this current one, which was attempt 4. They're not gone by any means, but it knocked them back. Oddly enough the cyano is a lot worse.

I went to salt water from fresh to experience managing an ecosystem..this is NOT what I meant. Stupid learning experiences, lol
