try a sand sifting star. even with all my algae problems, the star keeps the sand spottless. I also have an engineer goby, who takes care of one side with his tunnels.

do or do not, there is no try

I found that my inverts, no matter how many I had, didn't help. I did my water changes and kept a tight control over my nutrient levels. I finally asked at my LFS and found that they suggested two products.

ROWA Carbon
ROWA Phosphate

These two products worked like a charm. I put them in the back of my 12 gallon nano cube and in less than three days my algae problem was solved.
This is not a permanent fix, I know and I have added some more snails as well, but it sure kicked the problem in the butt and I am able to keep control of it now.

I hope that this helps.
Good Luck

If you have a lot of algea growth of greens and browns. you can do it chemically, but I prefer the natural way and a lot of mexican turbo snails and several rock or lawn mower blennies will do wonders. The blenneis are very good about keeping it off the rocks
