Since I come from a freshwater background, algae has always been frowned upon. I find that saltwater hobbyist don't see it as being such a bad thing.
I run a 9W sterilizer 24/7 and have been since day one. Water is crystal clear and I can't even grow algae to keep any turbo snails alive .

I don't know that saltwater hobbyists are any more tolerant of nuisance algae than anyone else. I actually have very little algae (except coralline and macro in the fuge) and crystal clear water as well.

I don't think you do. That aquaclear isn't doing much of anything. That is only 270 gph if I remember correctly.
