The ST I am assuming is a typo for DT which is Display Tank
is live rock and live sand
Ivan is correct about the live rock. I would invest in some dry rock from Bulk Reef supply. It will help you control ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates.
What are your parameters? Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, and Phosphate
The best way I found for manual removal of the hair algae is to rubber band a small diameter plastic tubing to a brush. Then you can let the other end of the tube hang out of the tank into the bucket. Then you just need to start the siphon and start scrubbing.
The hair algae really needs to be removed from the tank entirely or else it will just grow wherever it lands.
How long has this tank been set up?
