Quick info on the tank:
, 29 gal
sump, mag 12 drives the system with a scwd alternating between 2 returns, 2 300gph pumps in the main for more flow, a Magnum canister filter with just the micro-filter, 140 lbs of live rock between the main and the sump, euroreef 5-2 skimmer in the sump and one more 300 gph
powerhead in the sump for movement (macro algea happily grows in the sump).
I upgraded my 4x65 wt PC
to 300 wats of sunlight supply tek-t5s. So the tank is wicked bright now (dont be fooled by the wattage these bad boys are equivalent to MHs and I have some really good SPS
growth over the two weeks I have had them!). But I also have a ton of green slime growth on my glass, and there lies the problem. I am not sure what to do, everything was fine prior to the lighting upgrade now things seems to be growing at alarming rates (good for corals =) bad for algea). Any suggestions? All parameters are happily 0 and have been for a long long time, only distilled water goes into the tank (the walmart variety), evap water is replaced with a kalkwasser drip (also using distilled water).
