    Looking good dude, good to see you persisting! A lot of others would have given up! I did after my first bryopsis outbreak, but starting again.

    Alright guy's, updates have been slow.
    Cubes running along fine, But, bubble algae seems to be a problem.
    Around 3 month's back, I introduced a 1spot foxface to help curb the problem with poor results.
    Regardless, I am stuck between a new build or starting over.
    I will decide in time.

    A pic.

    Wouldn’t an emerald crab be better for bubble algae?

    An emerald crab is also not a quarantee. Foxface has higher odds imo.

    No need to break down the tank for algae, google flucazole vs Bryopsis.
