Did a 33% water change yesterday (2 wc ack to back) today I switched out a 600gph fow a 1250gph, that plus the 850 (2100gph flow total) hopefully will help.

How often do you feed, and how much? I feed 3x a week, and each fish gets 1-2 mysis shrimp. All are fat and happy...

Any food that makes it to the bottom of the tank turns into algae fodder and will fuel the growth. If you can't get it under control by siphoning it out, do a few large water changes (40-50%) back to back to lower those nitrate and phosphate levels. Suck out the algae while you're doing it, then just keep an eye on the tank.

How often do you feed? Clowns are good w/ 2-3x a week (mine get fed Mon, Weds, and Friday).
