Chances are, as long as you continue controlling nutrient in your tank, the green hair algae will disappear. When I started my 75G, rocks from mature tank did not have green hair algae but dry rocks did, for a while.

If you want to fill your tank with SPS in the future, do be careful not to add fast growing softies that could take over your tank.

Yeah I am trying to control it for sure. Not putting any hammers, torches or anything of that sort in there. Want it be a real mixed reef with Sps at the top. The vision keeps changing though.

Just an update. Wasnt really taking good care of my tank for a while there. Had two very close, very young friends die within a month of each other a few months ago, and well yeah that brought me to a very low point. Hair Algae was taking over and smothering everything. No water changes so things that weren't dying weren't really growing. One day I got up and did a water change and that snowballed into a cleanup and now I think my tank is doing well again. Soon we will be great.

Still battling the GHA issue but trust me it's a lot better than it was. It's mostly on the sand bed now. Here are a few pics.

If you are doing a water change, use the end of the gravel vac and just collect the algae covered substrate into a pile and then use a net to remove it.
