That kind of looks like what happens when my urchin eats the algae off of my LR. Do you have an unchin in there?

No but this happened the morning before I added a Peppermint Shrimp and a Red Legged Hermit Crab...Could it be the hermit eating the algae? He seems to like that LR.

BTW I noticed this morning that green algae is starting to grow on top of the white stains

I added live sand and bacteria and left it for a week then added cured live for like two weeks then I added two clowns to help on my cycling and that it's been almost 4 weeks from that point. I have been adding bacteria as indicated on the instructions on a weekly basis. 2 weeks ago I started using Nitrate reducer by instant ocean after a PWC but nothing happened. Last Sunday I performed a 50% water change but nothing either.
