Hi and thanks Gav.
I noticed this is a algae bloom (diatoms?) as I made the stoopid mistake of starting and curing my reef bones in tap water (salt) and didnt wait for my RODI unit to arrive. I have high phosphates and silicates which are feeding the algae. Water changes arent helping much so I have invested in a UV steriliser to keep it in check while i run SeaGel and carbon.
Fish and inverts are fine. Just ugly to look at. I did raise my LED fixture up about 6 more inches and hope this will help. Id do the 3 day blackout but i kinda also want to burn out the phospates and silicates. the fine coating of diatoms that I am constantly scrubbing off the glass aint fun... Skimmer is productive though!
Lesson - USE RODI!
