Default bryopsis problem

Hi,
lately i saw some places in my tank with bryopsis. near the overflow and on
streamming pump.
my tank running with zeovit for 9 years.
i have read in some forums that the best thing to fight it is by increasing magnesium to 2000mg for about 6 weeks.
1. is that the best thing to do?
2. what will happen to corals?
3. how to decrease mag after 6 weeks?

Hello Meir, if I understand the problem, the following information hopes to help things (due to the different regions, I don't know if the link fails, you try to see, please tell me if you can read the link, thank you)

1.https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/br...nazole.285096/

2.https://youtu.be/xilqKzoOgBE

3. Keyword, "Fluconazole" drug

4. Do your best, “manually” remove it, until you are exhausted.

It is said that magnesium boost can be effective, but it is said that magnesium needs to use a manufacturer's product, which is also magnesium, but the formula is different.


Sorry, I have not had this difficult problem and have no experience. I hope I can help you.

I think if you increase the Mg level the corals will get stressed. As just some areas are affected I would remove them manually with a brush. The pumps can be removed and placed into some water with vinegar for a couple of hours, the algae will die off. Not sure if you can do something similar to the affected area of the overflow.
