grape caulerpa......Google it....Just try and pick it out

Agreed, although I never had any luck getting totally rid of it. Naso tangs love the stuff.

If it were me, I would take it back. At least get the rock out of the tank before it starts spreading.

Look up peroxide dip. Its the best way to remove algae from zoas.


Be careful on using too strong of a solution or leaving the coral in the solution for too long as it can do more damage then harm, good luck.

1:10 ratio of hydrogen peroxide to fresh saltwater for at most 5min is a good starting point


"ship it"
Unless you absolutely love the zoas I would get rid of them. You dont want that stuff to spread its pretty tough to get rid of. But if u really want to keep them go with the hydrogen peroxide method described above.
