Ok so I've done a bit more research and I think I have an id for the algae in my tank. It's either dinoflagellates or calothrix. Nothing has died from the algae which leads me to believe it is not dinoflagellates. I have an emerald crab and turbo snail both of which aren't making a noticeable difference. I've lowered my lighting schedule to 8 hours a day. I'm feeding 1-2 times a day.(I'm trying to cut back) and the nitrates and nitrites are both low. Anyone have knew ideas on how to fix it?

Just keep up regular waterchanges to keep levils in check and your system is still new a lot of algae blooms ect will happen.

I know it's horrible to look at but everyone has been there at some point but patience is key
