Selcon is an excellent product but becareful on how much you use. For a larger tank it's generally not a concern but in a QT, the higher concentrations of [acronym="Highly Unsaturated Fatty Acid"]HUFA[/acronym] and lipids can create water quality problems. As long as you do a few extra water changes, it should not be a concern though.

Cheers
Steve

Scarlets also are a great additon to a cleaning crew but for manual removal you might want to attach a clean toothbrush onto you vacum so everything you pull loose goes into the trash water

I really appreciate all the help!! The idea of attaching a toothbrush to the vacuum is a great idea! I'm looking forward to trying it out. Another thing I've done is using the power heads manually to blow the algae off of the live rock. Thanks Again!! Hopefully I'll get rid of this stuff. I might try posting a pic so I know exactly what I'm dealing with.
