Unfortunately the majority of the algae is floating like a web in the water.

Had the same exact looking snot slime in the beginning of my tank (Led lost timing function, stayed on for eleven days while I was away.) I believe it was a combo of way too much light and some hitchhiker dying in the rock that caused it. Daily ten percent changes, siphoning the crap each time, and no light for better than a week got rid of it for me. Hope that helps even a bit.

Do a water test on your pwc water. It could be you are adding it.

Thanks for the responses. Should I just test for nitrates? I don't have a phosphate test and I am unable to get one for a few weeks.
