I'll look into that mr x. I was reading a little bit about that early. But the thread didn't say why they was doing it.

That site is down right now, but it's a good article. It will reduce your nutrient levels if done correctly.

I person I bought the tank just let it go. It has a mono and a damsel(which will be gone) a lot of the glass and most of the live rock was covered in algae. But I have cleaned everything in it. Looks like a different tank. Plus I bought a skimmer for it 2 weeks ago since the tank didn't have one

It's cool u saved the tank but sounds like its from lake of cleaning so just keep up with it and will settle down just remember cuc poop as well so adds to the bioload so u won't need a lot of them, what I do is get different kinds that do and eat different things so all areas are covered
