Is it red hair algae or red turf algae? ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Nuisance Algae ID Guide I am thinking if all your algae that your snails can eat they are starving to death.

Slime can be caused by lack of flow

I've got an mp10 and to be honest, all of my flow problems were cured! Mines only a 50 gallon though.

On a day to day basis I have it set to about 30% of max then occasionally give it a 100% blast!

Not all no. I have an all in one - a Red Sea Max 130 so there are also two pumps (powerheads) that assist with the filtration.

Gettin the MP 10 definitely helped. They are expensive but versitile.
