    Tried everything the pet shop told me to do, but cant get rid of the grass in my tank. It's taking my tank over and is now even growing on some of my corals. What can I do to get rid of it please.

    Welcome to MASA DeWet.

    I know it's a schlep but please post some pics, your tank parameters, your tank specs and equipment and all the things your lfs has told you to do so far. Otherwise this question is akin to phoning the garage and saying your car is making a click click sound and you don't know what kind of car it is.

    Sh!ts and giggles aside it's probably high nutrients Nitrate and Phosphate. Most people gain control of green hair algae (if that's what it is) by feeding less, increasing nutrient export (bio cubes, bio pellets, carbon dosing etc.) and increasing nutrient removal by heavy skimming as well as a phosphate remover.

    Start a thread, show of your tank and let people help you pimp your ride.
