I did some research and I'm pretty sure it's cyanobacteria. It almost goes away at night but as soon as I turn my lights on it starts coming out again and I'm just worried that it's going to start covering my corals. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm still trying to figure out how to post a pic

What are your parameters? Specifically nitrates and phosphates.

Because algae eats up Nitrogen and Phosphorus compounds, those levels often test within normal limits. I wouldn't bother testing, but if you do, don't be surprised that they are okay.

Look in the Reefkeeping Tips thread below for the links to excellent discussions about Eliminating Cyanobacteria and nuisance algae.

Come back here if you still have trouble. Algae control is one of my specialties. A pic is always very helpful. Feel free to send a pic to 808-345-1049 or to mark@marksreef.com
