well I've been online looking at pics and I was wrong. It is cyano and not the hair algae like I thought it was. Will anything eat that stuff or do I need to just keep working on getting it out. I stopped using the purple up and only feed the fish once a day. I'm thinking I may start feeding every other day to see if that helps. I buy RO water for all water changes and top offs.

Yeah, every other day is probably better, the new lights could have helped to fuel them as well.
Stick with the PWCs, siphon, reduced lighting and feeding, and you should be good to go.

thanks for all the help everyone! The air line worked great to clean the rocks. The tank looks so much better now that I was able to get in all the nooks and crannies. Thanks again for the great tips
