No doubt what I am seeing are hair algae. First you need to physically removed them as much as you can by siphoning while brushing them off during pwc. Cut down your lights for total of just 6 hours with white just 2 hours for now until algae is under control. Turbo snails and hermit crabs will make a good team work for your cuc. Cut down of feeding too.

Thanks. I bought a kole tang and siphoned a bunch out last night. Also I'm only feeding once every 3-4 days

I have been treating with algaefix. And I'm see a slight improvement . But this slimy brown crap is actually growing at night. This morning there are more strings floating that were not there last night...

It's a no no for algaefix in saltwater tank. You are getting rid of all algae including coraline which are beneficial algae.

AlgeaFIx Marine I assume you are using is just a nadaid. it kills the algae once you stop dosing it the algae comes back. It doesn't fix the problem of high nutrients only water changes, water movement and good quality filtrations does
