What do you use for red slime treatments. I've looked online and there seems to be quite a few different brands available and I'm getting tired of siphoning and tweezering.

no lights for 3 days followed by a rock scrub/large water change has worked great for me

I had crazy amounts of red slime. Chemiclean worked extremely well. One thing that I also did is a water change of 1/2 of my display volume
So I have a 90 g I did the chemiclean (exectly to the instructions), then instead of a 20% change, do something like a 40% change. If you don't have a sump you might want to only do a 30% depending on how much water volume is in your sump.

P.S. Watch your skimmer when you turn it back on!! More often than not Your skimmer will overflow a couple of times after the treatment. Just keep emptying your cup as it fills:biggrin:
