Thanks for all the replies! This site rocks.
I am sticking with it for at least a little while longer.
I went to a different LFS
than my usual one last night and it got me inspired. (they have sharks! I mean, like 4 foot sharks! Cool!) They also had a beautiful FW
Cichlid tank that got me inspired to go that way...
Anyway, I went there to get some carbon and an air stone to boost my CPR Bakpak skimmer. After adding the stone it's definitely pulling more out of the tank. While I was there, I asked the guy for any pointers on hair algae. He suggested sea urchins. I said to myself, this guy is full of it, I've never heard that before! Stupid LFS
So, I got home and put the two new urchins in my tank
and they seem to be doing their thing. I don't know if they really will eat the stuff or not, but if so, they have their work cut out for them!
He suggested killing the lights completely (I have no corals) and he also suggested a MAJOR water change. We're talking, replacing all the water in the tank. Taking everybody out. Changing all the water, scrubbing the rocks and putting in all new water. So, I think I might be doing that in the near future. If that does not work, I'll say scr** it, and get an oscar or something.
I'll let you know what happens.
