Green algea and Brown surface water..
First of all hiya. I have been posting on some other sites but after lurking a while here, this seems to be a little more mature crowd. I have couple questions. I have a 75g reef tank that I moved from previous owners home to mine about 3 weeks ago. Since then everything has seemed to recover and stabilize. However, this last week I have noticed some interesting hairy green algea and the surface of the water in the tank seems to be covered with a dust like film. Its too fine to be scooped out with a fish net and is almost oil like. When I dip a hand or bowl into the water, it comes out covered in this 'film'. Anyone got a clue for me? Also, the green algea, seems the more I mess with trying to scrape it off, the more it spreads..??
