Yeah I was worried about feeding my every other day but they are just fine. Sometimes they even go for a third day without eating from actual feeding by myself. I'm sure throughout the day they'll chomp on a bit of algae or something that floats by.

This has caused my PO to go from 0.5ppm to 0.0ppm, though I still get algae. After my red blenny died the algae has really picked up. It's not out of control, just growing all over the rock so it now looks more brown than pink etc at the minute.

I'm getting a yellow tang soon so that'll sort the algae problem out for sure.

looks like cyno bacteria.. have you tested your phosphates? cyno tends to grow in low flow areas.
