Is there anything i could use to kill hairy mushrooms!
I doubt it lol, you could try kalk paste if you want rid best bet is to replace the rock
I would but the rock at bottom! ( typical) was wonderin wether to try cuttin as much off with stanley blade and stand by with a net, wish to god id got rid of all me softies before i upraded me tank!
If you cut it every bit you leave behind no matter how small will grow into a mushroom so you could well make matters worse. Id serious think about it, strip down or put up with them as everything you could try will probably fail or make it worse
There was a thread on here a bit ago when somebody said they accidently put aip x on a mushroom and it killed it
It was me!! The mushie withered away and frayed like a rug unravelling. disappeared for 4 weeks completely, now its coming back! they are bomb proof!
That is why I suggested kalk paste as this ime works better than aip-x on aips
Don't want to sound thick but what is kalk? And where can I get it from? Cheers
Wouldn't some Veet work ?
Oh, my mistake, so sorry, just read it again and it's "hairy mushroom".
Can't you annoy them make them shrivel and putty over them if they sent too many or too big
Even when they shrink at night they're still to big to put putty over, and there's to many!
Kalk is a powder that is used to make limewater this can be used for dosing the tank at night to raise calcium, you should be able to get it from LFS. Then mix with ro, worth a try. Do not use loads at once as it will effect water chemistry
Cheers for that, I will give it a go!
It may well shrink them I know when I blast Aips with it any coral that it gets on will suffer so Id have thought it may well work whether they come back may be a different story though
