Woke up this morning to my 55 gallon uber cloudy and stinky. I immediately checked the halimeda algae and yep it had gone crazy on me so I pulled it all out. I only had enough salt to change 15 gallons. I did that and cleaned out as much gunk as I could then I had to come into work. It was still pretty cloudy. So far ive lost 2 damsels. Im guessing the algae went sexual?   I had a pretty good ball of it, maybe I should have thinned it out.
