I used Vibrant on two tanks.  The first tank has LPS, including octopus & hammer corals as well as soft corals such as mushrooms.  Vibrant removed all the unwanted algae & more.  The tank looked cleaner but the polyps of the octopus & hammer corals receded or closed up.  All the mushrooms, including yumas shrank in size & looked shrivelled.  This tank has a protein skimmer.  In the second tank without a protein skimmer, all the unsightly algae disappeared & the gravel becomes cleaner.  This tank has mostly yumas but they are unaffected.  I dosed twice a week for both tanks for a few weeks.

For the first tank, I have stopped dosing.  All the affected corals have recovered except for one specie of purple mushrooms.  I do not know why they are adversely affected by the bacteria from Vibrant.  As for the second tank, I have reduced the dosing to once a week.

Vibrant does not remove red slime algae.

It is quite potent start with half dose and observe. Some report that overdosing it will affect the chaeto growth in their refugium as well.

      FAQs
      How long can this last and where do I keep?
      For best results, use it within a week. Keep our specially design bag refrigerated to keep them dormant.

      Dose 5 ml per 10 gallons, 3-4 times per week.
      Two type of dosing method:
      - Direct dosing phytoplankton - Target Feeding (require lesser volume)
      - Indirect dosing phytoplankton - Broadcast Feeding (require more volume)
      Why SupremX Aquaculture:
      "Live phyto" or "concentrated" that acclaimed to have long shelf life through their decaying process will only contribute add ammonia and unwanted nutrients to your tank if left unconsumed.
      SupremX Aquaculture Phyto ensures freshness with no addictive or preservatives that allows live phyto to consume carbon dioxide and provide oxygen to your precious reef while helping the biological and chemical filter by using the nitrate and phosphate caused by animal waste, in the process of photosynthesis

      Has anyone used Vibrant? What's your experience with it? Does it contain an algaecide?
