Hey as the subject says I have a bunch of hard clear bubbles on only one of the rocks in my tank. What are they? Are they harmfull? And if so, how do I get rid of them?

Looks like bubble algae to me. You can try to remove them by hand, but be carefull not to burst them, because they might spread

Not 100% sure what I'm looking at, but it looks like you've got a bit of an issue with some cyanobacteria.

Suck out what you can with a small siphon. I use 1/4" line for stuff like that.

Reduce your feeding, increase your skimming, do a WC, and run a phosphate remover.

What happens if you press on the hard bubbles you mention?

Thanks for the replies! And yes violet after searching it on google it is bubble algae..I will just keep an eye on it to make sure it doesnt spread! 50seven I do have some stuff going on in my tank right now (I have made other recent posts with regards to it) I started running gfo/carbon a week or so ago and I am getting a skimmer soon...things have improved a lot already so im hoping it will continue to get better!

I will see about getting some emerald crabs then! Also, I have been battling aptasia but I have a peppermint shrimp that is eating them and I have been killing them with joes juice as well...that stuff works great! I am almost aptasia free haha
