I have enough flow. But l can Definitely increase my light. I cut it back thinking that was my problem. Any thing else that can contribute to this? Should I be skimming wet? I skim more dry then wet

To me it looks the the start of cyano. As mentioned above we have a great article about it in our SW article section.
