Hi

Does anyone know what this algae is, it grows in the crevices of the rock and is pretty well embedded so as that it won't pull out.

Over the last two weeks, as I have done my 10% water change, I have also added 4ml of vibrant each time (might be slightly underdosing this as I have a reefer 250).

I also have at my disposal some Flucanazole that I got from an online pharmacy if anyone as used this to give their reports.

it's kinda hard to make out in your pic but there are many species of green hair and turf algae, so i guess it's just one of those?  I get something that looks similar where the snails and urchin can't get to.

Fluconazole works pretty well, I wouldn't use it at the same time as Vibrant though.

Other than that,  a toothbrush might shift it
