Algae Issues

Still fighting... It's coming back but I'm trying to siphon it out. Might try to raise the ph but I have no experience doing that and am worried about how the fish and corals would be with that. Brushing off any I see and letting the filter grab it and I'm pulling it out with a net and changing the floss out daily. Doing another water change in the morning. Worried that I'm going to be fighting this forever.

Edit: I think I am going to try to use Seachem Marine Buffer in combination of reduced lighting and aggressive siphoning over the next few days and then I think I will do another couple days of blackout. I'm running my lights right now at 10 hours. I'm thinking of reducing this to only a few hours a day or just running actinics. Thoughts?

dinoflagellates took me about a good 6 months or so to get rid of. I did the manual removal with water changes. Unfortunately, no crab or snail will eat this stuff.
