Is that brown algae or diatoms on your glass and powerhead? If so what are your Nitrates and Phosphates? N and P will hender the uptake of calcium and keep you from growing Coraline Algae's. A good source that I have found for various colors of coraline aglae's is Garf Grunge, some cool stuff that can be bought at www.garf.org usually has several pinks, purples, etc colors of coraline in it, along with lots of bugs that will help the tank

have you figured out where the phospahtes are coming from and are you doing anything to bring them down?

Yea what it was was that I filled the tank with tap water when I frst set it up 3 yrs ago and I've been using tap water but about 3 months ago I started with ro water and changed my sea salt from instant ocean to red sea coral salt pro.. using tap water was a huge mistake... and I'm still paying for that mistake lol
