My fight against bryopsis

So I started dosing Kent Marine Tech M... almost two weeks ago.. From what I have researched and read. This process can take up to a month or more to kill the nasty stuff! Keeping the Mg leve at or above 1600. The bryopsis will first turn brown and than start to die off. So I set it up on a BM-T01 doser and have it dosing 60ml of Kent Marine Tech M once a day. So far here is my progress...

The bryopsis has effectively turned brown in areas. And in the last 2 weeks has not grown at all. Which normally It grows out of control if not pruned back! I upped my Kent Marine Tech M dosing to 70ml a day today. I am hoping with my increase in Kent Marine Tech M to 70ml a day will kill it off faster making sure the Mg level is always well above 1600. With 60ml it was just at or hovering slightly below 1600ppm. I am glad that I bought a gallon of that Kent Marine Tech M stuff. I will probably need another small bottle just to make sure its all dead. I plan on running the Tech M for 1.5months or atleast 2 weeks after the bryopsis is comepletely dead!

Just thought I would share with everone :)

It's not Mg that kills Bryopsis, it's some other ingredient in Tech M (or Brightwell Magnesion P which has the same mysterious ingredient).

In my experience it will eventually come back after stopping the treatment however I have been able to keep it driven back with a continuous slow drip of Magnesion P.

I purchase Magnesion P in a 5g bucket (powder form) which lasts much longer and more economical that buying liquid Tech M

I keep Mg in a range of 1600 - 1800

Kent Tech M melted some of my prize zoas. I slowly raised mag I think it was by 100 a day. About a month in my blue hornets and few other nice zoas melted away :( Kent did tell me to take mag to 1800 vs 1600 though. Maybe this was too high.

The majority of my zoas lived but lost color. I stopped the process since I didn't want anything else to die off and the bryopsis wasn't fading away. I had to pull the rocks with it. Bryopsis was growing in powerheads and I scrubbed them good but it came back.. After a few more scrubs finally over the battle. It was even growing in the sandbed but I could at least pick those out.

Still ****ed about the zoas that melted.
Bryopsis has been the hardest battle for me so far.

Yes I know its not thr mag but something else in there. But keeping ur mag up with their ingredient os the key. So

God bless Kent Marine Tech M

God bless Kent Marine Tech M

GOd bless this stuff its been on a doser for abou a month doing 70mL a day! It damn near GONE!!!!! I have a few places left to die off... I haven't seen my tank everyday for a few weeks, so I don't know if its a combo of the chemical solution and my sailfin tang and rabbitfish or just the solution itself. I will say this my tang has grown more than any of my other fish tho. So with the bryopsis on the decline. I just need to solve this stupid aptasia problem. I think today I will go get like 4 or 5 peppermint shrimp and give them a month while I QT A CBB AND GO FROM THERE.!!
