You can do a very large water change but you need to mix salt at least 24 hours, have it heated to current tanks temp, and have SG the same as the tanks. A large water change will def kill algae as it removes the excess nutrients that the algae is feeding on. There almost nothing in the water that really benefit the fish that wont be replaced by the new water.

I would say it's sand particles and there isn't much you can do about them... except get rid of the gobies...

2 yellow tangs in a 75. Just letting you know that's a bad idea and they'll be very susceptible to getting ich and dying.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
