system ive used this since the start of my tank.I have a 200g cap berlin sump w a double over flow box,a red sea berlin classic skimmer rated at 250 gal
max,my return is powered by a gen x 1199 gph
pump. I am using 2-chemi-pure filter mediums in the sump.I have used reef crystals salt mix from the git go. In the tank i have 25 lbs aragonite "live sand" and 30lbs of white sand (sillica) on top.My lighting is the standard 48" 40 watt bulbs (havent saved enuff for the lighting i expect to get.No live rock yet. The tank is a 90 gal
. and has been running for 3 months now.I havent done a water change yet the water has been crystal clear until last week and now its growing brown algae like crazy even across the sand. Please give me your opinions on my equipment and what steps i should take to get a handle on this algae nightmare!! I have been considering to purchase a UV
sterilizer do they really control algae like this ? And what do you recomend would be apropreate for my size tank models etc..
