Clean tank

I'm knee deep in my first salt tank. A FOWLR. Algae is everywhere and it's starting to get to me already. I'm off tonight to get some more snails. My question is is it possible/does anyone have a tank that is fish only, that you use algicides in so that the tank looks clean? My FW tanks always were free from algae and I guess I've grown more comfortable with that look than I had thought. I knew there would be algae in the FOWLR and I'm not ready to give up. just curious.

TIA

Mike

yes there is a way to get rid of it. i've tried a lot of things to get rid of my algae and the only thing that works is called red slime remover. it gets everything. i'm not sure if it safe for reef tanks though. this will work, i promise you.
