One way of getting rid of the algae would be to concentrate on your chaeto,if you give it more room and water flow and if possible give it some MH light for a month your algae will dissapear and your water will become crystal clear,just remember to cut it back and each month sqeaze handfulls of it out of your filter to release nutrients,this stuff works wonders

Go easy with the Kalk paste as it will not only raise your PH, it will raise your KH too. So monitor it as you go...

Whew...I'm tired now. I don't have pics just yet, but I hopefully spruced the tank up alot this afternoon.

I did a 15 gallon water change (like 40%), scrubbed some algae off the rocks, took out a couple rocks that were covered in hair algae and replaced with some dry rock I had, applied the kalk paste to a couple algae covered rocks (small ones), cleaned out my skimmer (it has been off because it was leaking) and will hopefully get it going again tonight, and the biggest thing: I hooked up the phosphate reactor that I have had for months and never hooked up. It is kind of rigged up, but its working.

There were still some stray strands of algae floating around and I got some of them with the turkey baster. I'll continue to get some out every couple days.

It will likely be Saturday before I can get some pics, but I will make sure I take alot of pics to add here.

Finally pics!

The FTS aren't what I hoped they'd be. Not as clear as I like, so I'm going to try again tomorrow.

4/8 are attached.

Clownfish, my Hammer, McCosker's Wrasse (didn't want his pic taken), and my hungry Brain Coral.

Click for bigger pics (all).

Your tank looks like it has a good start. You can see all the coralline algae seeding on the back of the tank. Every time my 5 year old sees a clownfish she reminds me that we are getting some of those... but it will be Dec/Jan before we get clownfish
