excess light seems no problem at all...i knew some reefers with 18hours of photoperiod...u shud look back at ur nutrient level...which i meant nitrate n phosphates....this 2 can cause u problem handling with algae even if your photoperiod was 6-7 hours per day....

I don't believe so....and excessive photoperiods play a big part in algae...I don't doubt that there's reefers who can run 16-17 hour photoperiods, but corals also depend heavily on nutrients in the water. If he's almost empty in his tank, and has high nutrient levels, his 10hr photoperiod is gonna bloom algae everywhere, hence why I suggested cutting back

some softies corals need nutrient to grow...but sps corals want as low as possible in nutrient level or else the colors will be more brown...but excessive nutrient can give u problem with algae....algae will survive with high nutrient...okay lets make it easy...what is your reading for No3 n po4 brother huma huma...??if it was below 5ppm (no3) n 0.25 (po4) then it was acceptable...u still see algae in your tank but not at alarming situation....algae will absorb this...
