Thanks for your help, Convict. I suppose it takes someone special to remember that they were once a beginner at some point. Not too many people are mature enough to admit that fact. I'll check it out.

Yeah, I agree that was pretty rude!!
Looks like you've got some nice coralline on your rocks, but the sandbed is definitely Cyano.
Cyano comes from too many nutrients in your water. Cut back on the amount of your feedings, and possibly take a couple hours off of your light cycle. On your water changes, siphon out the Cyano, it should come right off like a blanket. You may see it for a little while, just be vigilant, and keep sucking it out.
If you limit what's going into the system, it will dissipate.
Best of luck, Sanchek
PS. Don't just blow it around, it will land somewhere else and spread.

Can I suffocate it with substrate? I'm presently building a DSB since I heard it can help with nitrates control.

I wouldn't try to bury it, just suck it out with a siphon on an airline tube. Best way is to just remove it, whenever you see it.

I have a fish only tank with dry rock that is developing green and purple (coralline?) algae. How does one treat algae in a fish only as opposed to FOWLR tank? Is algae a bad thing or does it have some beneficial qualities even without live rock?
