Maybe, I'd say cutting back on feeding and/or use ro/di for top offs and water changes. That is a nutrient issue.

It's growing on one LR. It's hairy. I have a clown fish. I feed it pellets, make sure all food is eaten. I have 25 pounds of live rock. Then my biocube protein skimmer 30. It sucks. Can I get a suggestion on what to get for a 29 gallon.

And I also use ro water. Is iron bad for a tank? Could my clean up crew add to the red algae problem. There's 6 turbo snails. Also there are shrimp and I think sea slugs crawling around.?
