    Hello everyone, I need a little assistance...for the past two weeks, I've been pulling this unknown algae out my tank daily, it grows fast, and grows thick. It's individual stalks have fern/palm like leaves. It seems to be popping up more and more, and now around/within my corals. Aquatica told me it's a type of "good" macroalgae that they sell, and that I probably got it from them by accident. I can't seen to find much information online in it neither. So I need you all help to eradicate it before it gets out of hand.

    First pic looks like a feather caulerpa. But I can't say for sure.

    Smitty, if you don't mind me asking, could you pm me the name of the lfs you frequent the most?

    No wonder why my skimmer hasn't been skimming for the last 2 weeks, this stuff is stealing all the nutrients.
