Is your tank planted? If so, do you use fertilizers?

Is your tank near a window? If not, what light source and how long is it exposed to light?

Does your tank have a filter? Do you have fish in the tank?

You don't want to just start using some product to eliminate the algae. Algae is a symptom. You need to find out what the issue is.

I do not have plants just live sand and rock
It is near a window but has minimal light coming through
I have a 75 gallon saltwater tank with a cascade 1000 and a cascade 700 so filtration should not be a problem
The 700 is being used as a bio and the 1000 is my carbon filter
Also have 2 power heads for circulation. I have fish and live rock, corals, and a good size clean up crew and a blenny

Okay, since it's a salt tank, I have to bow out of this one. I only have fresh so wouldn't be able to tell you what to look for. Sorry about that.

Hopefully, one of our salty members will stop by soon.
