green algae

All my LR is covered in green algae. Some of it is coraline, but there is a lot of it. It is not hair algae or any real nusiance (I think). I have to clean the glass only about once per week. I am just wondering if that is normal. The tank has been up and running for 6 months. Tested yesterday and results were (and usually are) amm 0, trites 0, trates 0, PO4 0, sg is 1.025. Fish and inverts are all healthy, coraline started growing lately and spreading to some of the base rock . Even the small aptasia are healthy lol. Lights are on 10 hrs per day and I feed the fish every other day. I don't run a skimmer, and believe that that may be a cause. I also wonder if a HOB fuge may help. Water movement is good, 2 penguin 660, one powersweep PS-10 (not a lot of flow, but moves water around on bottom), and a Fluval 304. I think that covers everything, sorry for the long post.
I'm not addicted... I can quit when ever I want...Wait...I'll just LOOK at the fish.

55 gal cycling. Will be FOWLR.
