I am having algae issues in my 46g bow tank. I've got mostly red and a little brown algae that formas all over the sand. Tank has been running since las october, fish went in in late Jan. Right now I have a lawnmower blenny, a scooter blenny, a tomato clown and a small porcupine puffer. I've also got about 10 hermit crabs left and 3 or 4 turbo snails. (my puffer seems to be quite the pig) and also one sand star. I've got live sand and about 25 lbs. or flive rock. I've got an Aquaclear rated for a 55g, and a bak-pak type protein skimmer. I've also got a powerhead going as well. So all of this algae that's on my sand, how can I get rid of it? I stir the sand a bit with a stick every day as well. Also I know that 25lbs. of live rock probably isn't enough, but I am moving soon and I was planning on getting a total of double that when I move in to my new place. I've also had my water tested by two different lfs
, and they say everything is ideal. No trates or trites or phos issues. What should I do? I've already turned the lights to less than 11hours a day... Thanks for your help.
