Hey G.
I have been having great growth with my corals. Just still have some hair algae, not nearly as much as before. My phosphates are at 0.00 for a full month now and the hair algae is ever so slowly receding. Can I dose more Zeo Bac? Will that help

I would not see a problem dosing some additional ZeoBac. Do you already have CoralSnow ?

I have the new coral snow that I have been using twice a week. Will the zeo bac help to get rid of hair algae?

ZeoBac will not have a direct impact to the algae, it can be helpful to decrease nutrients which does support the process to get rid of them.

I have no experience with the CoralSnow Plus but it will also support the process to get rid of them.

It looks like the algae do pick up nutrients directly from the substrate while the concentration in the water column is close to zero. You can just regular try to remove them with a brush while keeping nutrients as low as possible. Herbivore should also eat the algae as soon as they are short or regrow in the areas you have removed them manual.

if you are using CS+ZB mixture to treat algae I would recommend 2ml/25G of CS+your normal dose of ZB.
I would also use CS not CS+ for this.
CS+ is tailored tward PO4 reduction, I think it have elements similar to what you see in GFO's especially rawphos. while there is enough data to show that CS+ do decrease PO4, there is not enough data to show that it have the exact same function as CS.
I use CS+ alone when I want PO4 treatment and CS for other normal CS functions (mix with ZB, improve water clarity, with CC for cyano...etc)

one more treatment I would recommend to reduce nutrients especially if you suspect leaching:
3 times a week:
1- ZZ 1tsp+BM 2 drops/25G. mix in 1/2l tank water in a container that have a lid. close the lid and let the mixture ferment for at least 8 hours, then dose it at night after lights off. make sure to tun your skimmer off for 2 hours before you dose. I usually prepare the mixture in the morning and leave it fermenting then I dose it at night
2- CS+ZB in the morning following the ZZ dose.

the theory here is:
ZZ will break down nutrient and accelerate leaching process, when done at night you are making sure the broken down elements are not fueling algae
then in the morning you dose the CS which bind elements, so it will bind the elements that ZZ broke down and prevent from being consumed by algae when light on. this along with weekly WC will help removing nutrients from your system
