So are you skimming? How long are your lights on each day? Are you using RO/DI water or ? Also, how long has this tank been up and running?

Oh and adding that 3 stripe would be a tremendous mistake IMHO. You're already overstocked with aggressive fishes, and 3 stripes tend to be pretty **** nasty also.

That's a problem...after 2 years that much algae is indicative of an issue, beit overfeeding, under skimming whatever else...
