Might be some coarlline algae in there. The green looks like regular old algae. Might be time for a clean up crew. Not sure on your tank size nut reefcleaners has a bood chart and packages I had great luck from them from rock to snails to crabs. High phosphates and nitrates will make unwanted algae grow faster too.

Rather than looking at cuc what are your parameters? Easiest way to get rid/ stop algae is take away its food supply

my ph is 8.1-8.2 salinity is a constant 1.026 temp stays at around 80-81.5. Ammonia .01 rates and rites are at 0.2. I use rodi water. I have a ATO system so my salinity never goes any higher. It's weird. I have a small clean up crew but I have to get rid of my Picasso trigger because it has slowly been getting smaller and smaller. Because I will be doing reef down the line. I have a coral banded shrimp a few crabs and some small hermit crabs. I was thinking of getting a sand sifting starfish and some more shrimp as soon as I get rid if my Picasso. What else would you suggest?

I am definitely not cycling in know that for a fact. The tank is a 135g with a 40g sump. The reason for the numbers was because I had just did a weekly cleaning of my filter socks skimmer and I vacuumed my sandbed. That's where those numbers came from. I just tested them right now and I am at 0amm 0rites and 10rates.
