Thanks reefbound, I’ve been feeding the phytoplankton but will get some microvert to try it out

As for your skimmer (Coralife superskimmer 65 model) I use the same model on my 55 gal and have been pretty happy with it. There are plenty of better skimmers for a 75 but IMO with that and the amount of water movement you have your excess DOC should minimize soon.

Are you getting good skimmate from your CSS?

Actually, I get clear skim,maybe a little tint but not much... Maybe the bio load is to small? Its been like that since September when I set this tank up... And before someone says its not working it must be because everything is doing well and no losses and the water quality is outstanding except for those floaters...Every once in a while I will get a green tea color but thats it...
