BUT my thick *** hair algea remains and appears unaffected so far.
I was told that this treatment would work on hair algae! Don't want to use this treatment if it won't take out hair algae! Anyone have some positive results using this on hair algae?

GHA took a week or so longer, but definitely disappeared. I also added a few Mexican turbos after the first week and they ate both types as it was dying.

Give it time, every report so far says GHA can take up to 3 weeks, Its only been one week.

Does anyone have an update on this product for hair algae?
I got a prescription from my Vet and got it filled at Kroger's Pharm. $93.00 inc tax for 50 x 200 tablets
(Need to be crushed) but am still reluctant to use it 🙁

Im on day 12 now Bryopsis is pretty much gone and I am seeing the smaller strands of GHA are losing color like the Bryopsis did when it started to die off. I cant tell if the thicker strands are effected yet but signs look good.

Im going to finish out 3 weeks, If I still have any GHA after that I will do a large water change and do a second treatment.

Thanks for the update. I'm all in at this point. Treated the tank today, very nervous but it's now history, sort of!
Skimmer went wild, took it off-line for time being! Keeping a side log that I will share down the road!

Week 2 update. Byropsis is gone. I see no signs of it. GHA is fading. The thinner strands have died off and the thicker ones are starting to turn greyish like the bryopsis did at the start, so its dying but slowly.

I think I will watch it for the next week and decide if I will do stop treatment next week or push it to 4 weeks.

So I decided to do a 3 day lights out while doing the treatment. Result. Small GHA is gone. Thicker stuff is short and grey looking. Shouldnt be long now.

Hair Algae
Day 12 of treatment, cut lighting to 2 hours a day! Don't see significant change in main tank, but did notice some reduction in refugium.
Question: should I go to 21 days? Or do a water change and re-treat?
Note: everything else in tank seems to be doing OK.
Thanks for any comments ��

Oh, I stopped treatment on Friday after a full 21 days. There is nothing but the small rotten nubs of some GHA left on some egg crate in my tank. Everything else is gone.

I had a few zoas come off the rocks but that may have just been due to the nutrient spike.

I did a big water change and got everything back running and all is well.

If you have GHA do the full 21 days at full dosage. It took mine more than 14 days to even show signs of distress, then it gave up and died over the next week.

Thanks, will go the 21 days as you suggest as I don't seem to have any other signs of distress. Fortunately
I only have mushrooms and other soft corals + fish and inverts.

UPDATE. Found a few spots of GHA popping up on my frag rack. Looks like a patch I didnt see didnt fully die.

If you are trying to kill GHA Id say up the time to a full 4 weeks at full dose just to be sure. Ill be doing that when I get back from my trip in a few weeks. In the mean time I am just going to bleach that frag rack as I dont see it anywhere else.
