You’re very welcome! Thank you for the update — that’s most welcome news! I’m very happy to hear that you were finally able to eradicate the black slime algae that had taken over your tank, and that the rest of your seahorses whether the siege none the worse for wear. Nuisance algae can be very difficult to get rid of once it gets out of control, and I know how long and hard you have been battling this problem, Kris.
If you can keep the phosphates and nitrates and other nutrients in the aquarium low, and observe the other preventative measures we have been discussing, the cyanobacteria should not return and your problems with slime algae should be over.
Best of luck with your seahorse setup, Kris!
