I have a rock that has what I thought was green hair algae(maybe it is) but when I went to pluck it it was hard as he>>. Does anyone have any clue what it could be and how to get rid of it thanks.

is it like turf grass? if so then i think it's called turf algae

i had some it was hard to pull off the rock, and it grow pretty fast. not sure what causes it, when i first started reefing i saw it growing on a rock and thought it was cool until it started growing out of control, i just took the rock out and put it in the sump. even if you pull it off it still comes back...

i am not sure if this might pertain to this topic, but wasn't there a method floating around that cooks the rocks that you can get rid of everything? of course you have to detach the coral first...

Just cut the leather off, rubber band it to a new rock, and toss that one in the backyard if that is easier for you.


Just get a stick like the kind you use for corn on the cob push it thru the stem and rubberband it to a new rock :)
