Ok all those things look good. What about top off water- is it rodi? Have you recently used a different food or dosing anything new? Are you feeding more than every other day and when you feed do you see pieces of food go all the way to the bottom?

I had to cut back on frequency of times I feed and amount of food I give.

Yes toping off with rodi, spectra with dual tds, reading zero.
I had been feeding coral frenzy twice a week but have since stoped.
Also had been dosing calcium, strotiom and purple up alternating but stoped that also

Hmmm it is interesting you mention feeding coral frenzy because I started with that about a month ago and have also had a bloom of algae...

But I upgraded from a 55 just two months ago so I didn't know if maybe it was that.

Ok yea it looks like diatoms to me. How long ago did you stop feeding coral frenzy? How often do you feed the fish?

Coral frenzy has been over two weeks and two water changes ago.
