  8. I think all of us who have suffered the evil weed are doing a little dance😊
  9. It is a right pest and because it loves the exact conditions we are trying to achieve for the corals in the tank getting rid of it becomes very hard, its also a rapid grower , so far the customers who have used the treatment are reporting good results and seeing it slowly clearing which is looking good.
  10. yeah happy birthday old timer lol
  11. Yes, I believe it has a systemic effect; Meaning on entry into the bryopsis, It works it's way through the transport system to all areas of the bryopsis. This allows the Fluconazole to all parts of the bryopsis. For example; a contact systemic weed killer enters the plant’s foliage and works its way through the plant down to the plant’s roots which is essential to kill the plant completely. as its still effective a week after W/C and skimmer resumed. I'm still watching the last small remnants die off, although it's so tempting to scrape it off. As to dosage amounts, the only thing the 180 page thread appears to warn against is overdosing. So I guess it depends on how confident or cautious you are. Early days still. I've read the majority of the thread, but they update the sticky with instructions frequently. I know there has been occasional reference to lower dosages, but I honestly don't remember the outcome. The last time I checked, the original person has been bryopsis free for over 4 months. Im sure in a short time we will be more knowledgeable about the best approach.
  12. Happy Birthday Jason... you old git ! have a great day.
  13. Hi, yes it does appear to work and have another customer who suggests at lower dosage which is good, he also said that when dosing it do not remove any of the algae because the treatment travels from the tips through to the base so by removing algae and breaking it off you would likely see it re grow back later but if left in place the algae will slowly die , its looking good so far.
  14. I believe it was me that mentioned it to Jas and let him know my results this afternoon. I have used this and used the recommended dosage and can report it appears to have worked. No skimmer or carbon for two weeks, then W/C and skimmer etc back on. Bryopsis gone and GHA disappearing now on week 3. Have enough for a 2nd dose, but waiting to see if GHA goes without needing it.😊.

  16. Hi m8,yes I have one customer who has just used it and another who used it in the past and both say it worked fine, kills it and to date they have had no bad effects either so its looking good, I think if I was using it I would go for a half dose of whats recommended to start with and if not strong enough wait a while then start again with a higher dose.
  17. i read this the other day, it will be intresting if it works because i cant get rid of of the bloody stuff!
  18. Cool
  19. Thank you for your reply, I will give Jason a call in the morning. Hopefully see you tomorrow!
  20. Hi, this was bought to jasons attention this morning after a phone conversation with a customer who will be trying it and getting back to Jason with the results , its a new idea to us but thanks to the customer for letting us know about it and I look forward to feedback on how it goes. http://www.reef2reef.com/threads/bryopsis-cure-my-battle-with-bryopsis-using-fluconazole.285096/ Have a read ,ive not gone through the thread but definitely will be because this is a stubborn form of algae that does take some beating and enjoys life in our tanks to easily , basically unlike many other algae forms the better the water and light conditions the more it thrives which is a bit of a pain..
  21. Unsure ,not noticed anything different with it here.
  22. Yes, if you can give jas a bell on 07756195118 on the day to let him know you are coming in just in case something crops up and a new time suitable for all has to be arranged.
  23. Hi guys, Will you be open at the shop on Wednesday morning? From half 10 onwards?
  24. I have been using salifert kh buffer for over two years now. I have a set amount I mix into a set amount of water but this one tub I have now doesn't seem to dissolve very well and I'm left with white bits that don't dissolve at all then settle in my balling tub. I have also noticed the buffering affect of my set amount of fluid I dose is not keeping my kh steady like normal. What's going on I assume I have a shit tub if buffer?
  25. Yeah regular pre filter changes are definitely the way forward and aid both tank and ro unit.
