Tank is just about a year old. The algae does seem to stick to certain areas, but oddly the areas have good flow. The hair algae is blowing around a lot.

I do have a test kit, always comes out good but I haven't tested in a while. I'll do that over the weekend.

Yeah, there is some algae that actually likes the flow. Just test the water and see what the results are. Your nitrates might still be on the high side. A simple water change can help that problem.

I'm fighting the same problem right now. I'm doing a lot of things to fight it right now but I have this problem with overfeeding. They just look so hungy!
