All this algae!

I've been feeding less, my protein skimmer is taking a bunch of stuff out. I've been doing lighting a bit less

But all in all, I'm not too sure what all this different kinds of algae are

Seems like a flow issue. How many powerheads do you have?

I agree. It didnt start over night and it wont go away over night.Have you tested your PWC water to make sure you are not adding ammonia and nitrates.

I have one powerhead and I do believe it is. You suggest I get another one?

How big is your tank?

Never a bad idea to increase flow (to an extent)
