I wouldn't worry about it just yet. You got bigger issues like getting your tank cycled.

Do you have any pictures? that can help the members here identify it.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Probably hair algae, usually comes in big time as the cycle winds down. Will go away as you reduce nitrates, phosphates.

ok, just checking lol

Have you read up on the fish in cycling articles on this site? Just so you know what to expect, I feel bad being the only one who's really giving you advice though I know there are some people reading and not posting.

Just want you to know that I'm not just making stuff up. hehe...plus eco's thread about cycling is the best I've seen on the site.

On another note, your nitrates are finally coming down which is good. If you weren't cycling with fish you could just let it run wild. Any chance your LFS will hold your clowns for you while you cycle? Its gonna take awhile probably and that means constant water changes. :-( Just another option maybe, I know it must be hard doing so many changes.

That's a good idea about seeing if they could hold the fish, I guess I could ask next time I'm down there
