Can anyone help me?

I have red algae growing all over my sand in my tank and i dont want to use any chemicals to kill it because i heard chemicals can ruin live rock and corals. I bought a diamond golby and he helped out alot but in the last few days the red algae got worse. Dose anyone have ideas on a safe way to make it stop growing and spreading?

Grippe, you may want to start a new thread with that question, and you'll probably get more views...
