That would be an interesting datapoint.
Interesting point.. I want to say I doubt it. Algae does put chemical messengers and signals in the water, this may be another reason green algae inhibits dinos.

@Billy I hear you on the rock. It's so frustrating when you are being careful and doing everything 'right' and something like this happens. Having a box of water in the living room that kills everything you put in it is not a relaxing experience.

About the hair algae, stick a rock in. It is unlikely to kill corals unless it's blocking out their light. Actually I doubt it will even grow in your tank unless you get your nitrates and phosphates up.
