Nope you didn't miss it, I didn't post it .... I went from two NO lights 18watts up to a 2 x 65watt Orbit PC setup. I noticed the Algea before the new lights, but not near as bad.

Yeah new lights and old lights a BIG difference in wattage! about a 100watts different.
And this is definitely not Coralline, I have that as well and it forms in circles and is very hard to scrape. This stuff I have comes off fairly easy.

God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!
