Don't worry. Answer these questions:
What/how much/how often are you feeding?
What is your light cycle?
How long have you had your light bulbs?
Is your "my info" still correct?
What are your water parameters?

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Algae is a PITA. As roka mentioned, we need some clarification. Can you get pics of the algae? Nuisance algae is most always related to excess nutrients in the water. Have you tested for PO4 and NO3?
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

And, are you skimming?

What is used for flow?

How old is tank?

If "my info" is correct we have some work to do.
