That is a bad case of cyanobacteria. Almost as bad as my green water pond when I don't do a water change for a week. Almost, not as bad.

Prob best to check your phosphates, if they are quite high, cut back on feeding and use phosban or rophos, you can siphon them out on your water change or with a turkey baster, I have heard good things about sea hares eating them, but they do spray it in defence if startled though from what I heard

how much should i be feeding?

i also have 1 frogspawn coral.
For flakes I would do a small pinch shortly after the lights come on and a small pinch shortly before the lights go off.

For frozen cubes: Place the cube in your net and rinse it, fully defrosting the cube. Then place the food in the tank. The frozen liquid is like rocket fuel for cyano in your tank. I fed mysis twice a day to my seahorses and I learned the hard way.
