I used this:

Yup that’s the stuff (fluconoze). How’d it go? I have this short reddish turf algae, that’s not real impressed by anything I’ve tried. (Nutrients, no nutrients, no light etc etc)

im think im heading towards the end. dinos pretty much had me wanting to just set the thing on fire.. the vibrant cleared it up over 2 weeks and then cyano started. looks like the cyano is destabilizing though and not regrouping as quickly. so heading towards the tail end if i'm lucky.

I have used it a couple times on Bryopsis and it was 100% effective. No adverse affects whatsoever on corals, but as mentioned, it will also kill macro algae.

We used reef flux for hair algae in our office tank, it worked very well.
Corals were mad because the skimmer was off for a week, but no lasting issues.

Mexican turbos took care of a huge outbreak of the red turf algae for me.

After the initial dose of Fluconazole, is there another? I’m at 72hrs and I think it’s working. Skimmer is still down.

It can take up to two weeks for the treatment to work. You should start to see signs that it's working any day now. The algae filaments will start to lighten up and turn grey/white. After that within a few more days the hair algae will likely be all but gone.
