Send a message via Yahoo to arizona reefer
the pod reproduce in your tank and then your fish will eat them. you have alot in your filter because the fish can't eat them while they are in there. some of them will work there way into the tank by way of waterflow

got a pic? They might be a type of worm. Hard shell in the shape of a curlie-Q? I had them all over the filter and protein skimmer of my previous tank.

Pods find there way through even protein skimmers and pumps from my experience. They are a good thing!

Algae is either too many nutrients, too much lighting or phosphates in your water. I'm sure there are other sources. I am having a bad outbreak right now too and my water quality is just fine with no phosphates. Must be nutrients. I've cut way back on feeding but my corals and other inverts need the lights so oh well.

I don't think so. That's about 9 watts per gallon and I have 580 on a 90 gallon. The problem might be how long they stay on or how old the bulbs are. It might help to cut back on the number of hours they are on. Mine are on for ten to twelve hours a day and I should cut back because of the algae but my corals might suffer. I don't see any corals on your list so you might be able to cut back for a while. My lights are also mostly MH.
