Sounds great! I called West Marine and asked if Startron is the right stuff for black sludgy fungi in the tank and she says no. She says Startron is a preventive that's added to every tank to prevent fugi growth and that once there's fungi, something like Biobor has to be used to kill it first, then add Startron to prevent it. Is she full of it? Is she trying to sell me more stuff than I need?

Should I drain my tank before filling it with Startron? I'd hate to drain the tank unless I really have to. If I have to drain it what is the best way?
