Briopsis question


Recommended Posts

So I have briopsis in my tank again :( last time had this problem I aquired a sea hare and it solved my problems.This time around I dont have access to a sea hare. At some pooint in my research I remember that you can dose magnesium to a certain point to melt the briopsis away.So my questions are what is the best method to dose mag and to what levels are the corals safe.Or is there an alternative to end this problem before it gets any worse?So far nothing I have eats it and it doesnt seem to be going away.my perameters are in check but I presume that there must be a little something that allowed this to grow but not enough to be traceable as it has already been used.

This ia a 40 gallon breeder tank.

PH - 8.2

Ammonia - 0

Nitrite - 0

Nitrate - 0

Phosphate - 0

Calcium - 440

KH 8

Salinity - 024

Metal halide 250 20,000kelvin,skimmer,carbon,low bio load in fish

six line wrasse,yellow watchman goby,and a pair of clown fish.

I have done a water change with my RO water and it seems to not be growing as fast but it is still there :(

any help would be apreciated.

I am maintaining high Mg to rid my 150 of bryopsis. I used magnesium from BRS and mixed up a solution. Then I used the BRS calculator to calculate the dosing amount to raise levels over 1500. I used my doser to add the amount over several days. I have been holding this level for several weeks and it is working great. Bryopsis is dying and no adverse effect on corals.
