Question about algae

We started phytofeast (spelling?) to our corals about a week ago. Since then we have gotten this light green algae on the sand bed. Is this the cause of the algae? Our levels are normal. If it is what should I feed them instead? How do I get rid of it? Thank you!

Yes, your feeding is feeding the algae growth. Limiting feeding will solve this issue. You can simply siphon the algae out of your sand with some airline tubing.
