    My RSM 3 weeks on, note the algae, which is irritating. All water parameters are ok. Hope this will pass. Have realized lights have been on too long, reduced from 10hrs to 6hrs, will see how it goes. Any other suggestions. Just loving it so far.
    Tank has 10kg base rock
    14kg Live rock
    1 blue legged hermit crab
    1 Green star Pollop
    All doing well

    Welcome. It will pass. If the hair gets to long, just pull it of.

    Looking nice dude, why do you have your lights on during cycle? But I guess its good, rather pass that hair algae now then later...

    Thanks for the feedback

    Regarding the lighting, Red Sea User manual, recommends the curing of live rocks to be 6hrs of light per day. I got it wrong and started with 10hrs. Actually the manual says start with 6hrs and increase by 1hr every 2nd or 3rd day. we live and learn. Good to see many dark areas of pink and purple coraline appearing. Thanks for the support everyone.
