Well, here is my tank as is right now.

As you can tell I have been going though my Bloom. :-/ I have been doing 20% water changes every two weeks. Everything reads fine, so I take it the Diatom Algae is eating the nitrates. My lights are on till 10:30am to 9:30pm, and it's a four bulb system. Should I run my lights for less for a while?

Besides the nasty bloom, everything has been going swimmingly! Every fish I transferred is alive and kicking and doing well! They have all gotten much bigger as well. They seem so much happier with their new system! I still want to add two more fish, but I don't know which! I figure I would wait until the Diatom Algae dies down. I would like another Flame HawkFish!

Just for the heck of it, I posted my a pic of my little ten gallon! I am actually converting it over to a planted tank. I don't like the rocks, but my wife does so they stay. :-p At least I am going to be able to take out all the nasty plastic plants.

Diatoms eat silica they will burn them self's out soon. Hawkfish are so cool. Tell your wife the rocks in the ten just gotta go.

Hahah, no the rocks stay. I wouldn't want to take them out anyway. :-p

I do love how the fish seem more alive when you put live plants in. I also think Moss Balls are God's Gift to the fresh Water community, but that's just me. I am going to get one more live plant and two silk plants. I only got enough light on one side of the tank and the other is low light for my dwarf Gourami. Being they light lower light settings.

I hope my Diatoms die out soon, I am sick of it. It's been about two months now. :-/ I know it can take a real long time. The sad part is, it was just starting to die out in my 55 gallon when I moved everything to the 120. LOL

Is their any type of plant that my fish wouldn't eat, that I could put into my tank to help with the Diatoms? Wouldn't a plant eat the same thing and kill out the other? The issue is, all of my fish will eat anything I put into my tank almost. :-p

There isn't anything that will consume diatoms besides them starving themselves out. There is media that says it removes silicates, but can't say if it is effective or not. One thing is for certain, is that they will die out eventually like you said.
