I agree with MELOSU... All apart of reef keeping. Algae is so common in every home aquariums sometimes good sometimes bad.... Like I always say your Aquarium is like a Box of Chocolates you never know what your going to get.

OK Thanks Melosu! Wish my tank was big enough for a Tang..

That picture doesn't look like a problem at all. Just like melosu58 said... just part of keeping a reef. If we exported ALL the nutrients from a tank, nothing would grow. So between a cleanup crew, and a magfloat cleaning every day or every other day, that's the best we can do. Your picture looks like my tank after about 3 days if I don't clean it
