I would lower the amount of daylight you have in half if it doesn't improve I'd go less..how many power heads do you have?I would manually remove it and add more power heads..increased flow will prevent it from taking a hold on anything in the tank.most corals grow in shallow waters near the surf where current is at its highest ,you want to replicate that as much as possible and you'll never have an algae(bacteria-cyno) problem

Lower nutrients, dont worry about what test kit reads the algae is consuming it so you will get a false reading. Chemiclean will kill it but if you still have high nutrients it will come back!

So would that be the amount of food I use? I use a half a cube twice a day for my 4 chromis 2 clowns and 2 dragon gobies. But I just have done this over the last couple days. Also they love brine shrimp that what I have now I was using something else but a whole cube they didnt really like I dont think.

Just a quick note. Since ceano is a bacteria it does not rely on light to grow. It will stay if you don't physically remove it then it will gradually slow down and disappear once you have the right bacteria to take over.

Wow! That is a lot of food! I feed my fish twice a week. Sundays and Wednesdays. And I have six fish, they get a small pinch of pellets and maybe 1/8th of a shrimp cube.

Yes you can remove the rock out and place in a bucket with salt water from tank and use toothbrush to remove them.
