How big are we talking here? We both started our tanks around the same time, and you always had much better water quality than I did. If those nitrates are creeping up, look into some macro algae to suck it down. I'm currently loving my red bone grass. But putting the refugium literally moved the hair algae growth from the display into the sump, which is what it is partially the intent. Easier to remove from there and not an unsightly issue in your display.

I don't have a sump or fuge yet so I will have to settle placing my macroalgae in my display tank inside of a breeder net just below the lights.
