A few weeks later. I feed small amount of food every three days to clownfish and cut back light to 6 hours. I still have growth of the evil green hair stuff. Is their any other level of care I can do?

maybe a few snails , or maybe a lawn mower blenny
50% water changes will also help
where is the tank located is it close to a window
that will increase algae growth also

I'll add a new clean up crew this week. Along with raising my light. We will kill this green stuff soon enough. Thanks for help.

I would get a reactor and start running GFO to lower phosphates

I only feed my fish once a week about half a cube of frozen mysis. What do you feed your fish? Flake foods contain a ton of extra phosphates.

A sliver of a cube. Every three days.
