    Looking good - all nice and clean for now (will soon change as it matures :)).

    Can't see vids until I get home (something to look forward too).....work has a restriction on what we can/can't see (censorship!) :mad:

    Nooooo, I've been using caleurpa for a few years with no problems to be honest might be a lot of mixed reviews on this algae myself I've never seen a tank crash by using this algae and I've read that the die off of algaes in your tank can be a good thing. For now is going to stay, my main test kit is my eyes if I see things changing then I'll have to rethink but for now am happy whith what I see lol
