Re:Black Slime


Hi Pete,

By the time I got your last reply my tank looked like some alien swampland. The coral was all covered in black goo………. the plants were enveloped in the slime…. I couldn’t keep up. Honestly, is this the worst thing I have ever seen in a salt tank. I would clean it in the morning before going to work…. and by the time I got home it was worse than before.

After hearing from you… I put the horses in a five gallon tank and went to work. Two day ago I was finally able to locate the chemiclean and things are looking much brighter!!! The slime has stopped growing and seems to be dying off………….. The horses are doing well in their "alternate" tank for now.

My question is this.. How long do I need to keep the seahorses out of their tank?

Thanks again for all your help. I am definately on the upswing here!!!!
